About me:

    Betty Ching makes creative fashion jewellery and creative crafts influenced by her background in textile design and her fascination for body movements.  She uses colours and textures to great effect in her collections. Her interest in passing on her skills through workshops had led her to develop a range of craft making kits.

    The kits are a fantastic resource for craft classes and also make great gifts. Betty believes her products can be creative & affordable at the same time!

My business currently at the product development stage of a DIY range, to promote everyone CAN be ‘CRAFTY’, and this involved using up-cycling textiles hangers turn into craft products, including using lazer cutter to cut out details pattern with line stitch mark.

This project with include product developing, instruction stage (both written and digital visual), packaging and sample production.

Having access to your facilities, allow my business to produce the samples/ prototype in a larger scale, record costing and production management information in details etc. 

By the end of the project, I should have completed range of products ready for production, along with a business plan, which will be use to apply for a grant to purchase the lazer cutting machine for production. 

Part of the project involved short clips of HOW-TO movies, we can have sessions on planning , development and shooting some of the clips on-site, students would have a ideas process on the ‘behind the scene’ experience.  

I would love them to test drive my products ideas, use the DIY packs and give me feedback, as part of the product developing experience.
