On September 8th, SBTG Workshops organized Classroom 1, a sneaker customization workshop where participants learnt the hows and whys and the dos and don’ts of making custom sneakers.

Participants included Haikal Bakar, Co-Founder of Straatosphere, Dexter Tan, Co-Founder of Sole Superior, and Kamiliah Bahdar, Art Curator at Galerie Steph.

Classroom 1 commenced with a demo by Mr. and Mrs. Sabotage who taught the fundamentals such as deglazing a shoe to prepare it for paint, the finer points of applying paint on leather, and the tips and tricks of using stencils to re-produce perfectly executed logos and artwork on custom made sneakers. Post demo, participants proceeded to have a go at making their own custom sneakers.
