Launched in October 2014, Bynd Artisan features a gallery showcasing collaborations with local artists, a retail space for paper & leather products and an Atelier, where craftsmen work and share their expertise. Led by Master Craftsman, Mr Chong Beng Cheng, Bynd Artisan embraces the task of educating and imparting our years of experience to a new generation through leather crafting and bookbinding workshops. Our craftsmen will be pleased to share their knowledge to those wanting to learn.


This 3-hours workshop teaches basic skills of working with leather (i.e. cutting, stitching). Craft your personal leather pen sleeve by choosing the natural grained leather piece and thread of your preferred colour. Stow your pens and pencils safely in this sleeve and you are ready for a relaxing day of outdoor sketching. Increase its uniqueness with a simple name debossing.

All materials and tools provided. Participants are able to bring home their customised pen sleeve at the end of the session.
