Last week on September 8th 2013 Mr. and Mrs. Sabotage held their very first SBTG Workshops. The first classroom started with a sneaker customization workshop where participants learnt the hows and whys and the dos and donts of making custom sneakers. Participants included Haikal Bakar the co-founder of Straatosphere, Dexter Tan the co-founder of Sole Superior, and Kamiliah Bahdar from Galerie Steph.

The SBTG Custom Sneaker Workshop is an empowering experience that will change your outlook on sneakers forever. Formulated even for non creatives, the SBTG Workshops are designed for every participant to take home the knowledge and skills of personalizing their very own one-of-a-kind pair of kicks.

Aside from sneakers, SBTG also conducts several workshops in the realm of D.I.Y culture. Bearing the philosophy of Evolving Beyond your Surroudings, SBTG believes that its possible to personalize things around your “lifestyle”. SBTG Workshops have been tailored into corporate team building events as well as exclusive perks for clients for brands like Nike, Vitamin Water, DC shoes, Bos Ice Tea at the STRCRD festival, Johnnie Walker, and the Redbull junior racing team.

Classroom 1 also 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. Watch the video above for the end results and what each participant had to say about the SBTG Workshops
