Recently, I met Mr Shuang at a leather crafting workshop. Discovered he was formerly an engineer and now hobbyist instructor.
He has a regular group who learn making leather crafts like wallets etc.
How did he become interested in leather crafting? Well, he was teaching balloon sculpting and wanted to teach something thats more permanent.
We all know the famous accountant turned wall mural artist.
The visual artist turned sand art artist. It seems the experential economy does have a place for those of us who want to pursue passion in our hobbies.
3D Latte artist I met in Penang. Although watching him make the 3D foams, I wonder how much of it became a routine, rather than self expression?
