Arts & Craft Bazaar

Everybody knows that one of the best things about attending an arts festival are the goodies that you’ll get to purchase before heading home! Yayasan Sime Darby Arts Festival (YSDAF) 2018 will be no different. If you’re looking to pick up some arts and craft items during our Festival, here are some booths you can visit over at the Main Lawn, klpac from 11AM to 8PM:


Happy Dumpy

Happy Dumpy puts a fun and modern twist into a collection of delightful handcrafted designs offering handmade backpacks, handbags, sling bags, purses, toy plushies, cushions, pillows, pouches, artisanal soaps, lip balms, and more. 



If you stop by this stall, say hi to Jeslyn Ooi Shiyun, founder of Happy Dumpy. She runs the company as a one-(wo)man-show, serving also as artist, designer, and illustrator.



Art Beyond the Canvas

Janet Lee set up this business in 2011 to become more financially independent after experiences of unpredictable seizures coupled with learning and developmental challenges prevented her from thriving in a traditional workplace. Don’t miss out on her artwork, home-baked cookies, souvenirs items, and fashionwear with accessories. 



Janet donates 10% of all her sales to a children’s home for the abused, under-privileged and/or orphaned children- so your purchases will contribute to help these causes too!



INTI Center of Art and Design (ICAD) Booths

Apart from their indoor and outdoor arts installations titled Deria and Rasa, ICAD students will host four booths that will be selling a myriad of items ranging from handmade purses, soap dispensers, clocks, notebooks, and more.



Mr. Vegetabird

If directly translated from the Chinese language, “Mr. Vegetabird” means “newbie”. This designer brings a distinctive positive spirit and energy to his works.



Come and snatch up badges, calendars, washi tapes, stickers, and more to add happy vibes to your daily-use items.



Persatuan SLE Malaysia

Persatuan SLE Malaysia (PSLEM) is Malaysia’s national support group for people living with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). 



Support this cause by purchasing a range of handicrafts made by the members themselves, such as bags, button lanyards, floor mats, wristbands, and keychains.



Khalid MS Studio

Khalid Bin Mohd Sapari has spent eighteen years as a visualiser, and six years as a full-time artist. He brings personalised genuine artwork to create many arts and crafts items such as printed artworks on canvas, art cards, fridge magnets, and more.



Print Ditty

Print Ditty is the business brainchild of printmaker and artist, Nadia Nizamudin. The brand celebrates simple hand printed design and art. 



Expect to be greeted with an array of artwork for the home ranging from embroidered textile paintings, mixed media wood artworks, original collage art, hand printed pouches, bags, and necklaces in their signature simple style. The best part? No two items are the same!



Sisters Craft

Sister’s Craft booth features various home and stationery items, all of them handmade with love and care.



The stall will display several handmade crafts ranging from handmade books, wedding guest books, artworks, door hanger books, and more.




With an Engineering degree in one hand and a paintbrush in the other, STANOH has always found interest in bringing together both the worlds of Science and Art. Stop by this stall to experience his keen eye for detail and see works of art that fuse together traditional and digital media.



On top of various paper products and art prints, view STANOH’s recently launched art wear, a kimono cardigan that is produced 100% locally- perfect for your inner fashion-forward art lover.
