PATCHES MARKET, VALLETTA MALTA
This video depicts Malta's first artisan market which I founded back in 2010. Patches Market brought together a variety of local talented artisans. It gave them visibility and an opportunity to network and expand their business.
Attending the workshop has really helped me focus on making time for myself again. So after work i try to switch off and do something relaxing for myself.
For 2 whole hours I was lost into magazines & pictures switching off my mind. It was one of the most creative and meditative time I had in the last few years.
