Handcrafted with Love for Christmas
HOMEHIGHLIGHT ▸ Handcrafted with Love for Christmas

Christmas is just around the corner, and there are plenty of options out there for shoppers wanting to find gifts for their loved ones. Looking for something unique? Join one of these workshops hosted by local designers to make your gifts one of a kind.


YLYstudio is one of the few local fashion brands to host workshops. The brand was established in 2017 by Lilian Tsang, who specialises in French embroidery art, and knitwear expert Matt Hui. The duo’s mutual passion towards promoting fashion craftsmanship in a contemporary way is shown by their use of innovative materials. They are also aware that embroidery art education is not common in Hong Kong, which leads to the idea of hosting workshops themselves.

Beginners are welcome to join the 1.5-hour Christmas themed class, during which they can create a unique Christmas wreath with basic needle embroidery techniques such as chain stitching, feather stitching and 3D stitching. Intermediate learners can challenge themselves in a two-session (six hours) haute couture embroidery class. Participants will learn basic luneville hook embroidery techniques to make a beautiful sequin brooch using different materials. Participants of the two classes are allowed to share the same time slot to exchange ideas. What’s more, participants will get to see the label’s signature pieces as the workshop venue is also YLY Studio’s showroom. The brand’s vision and attention to detail is sure to inspire the participants’ creativity.
