Sit down with Massiah as he takes you on on a journey in Massiah: Novel Trouble (Series). This 3-part mini series has him go out of his comfort zone to explore other types of art forms. In this first episode, Daphne Chao, founding owner of Ilyang Ilyang, teaches Massiah the tips and tricks of crocheting.
We’ve seen his Instagram posts wearing a crocheted beret and we definitely were wondering where he got it. Now we know, he made it! He explains why we wanted to start hosting this series, “during the pandemic it was hard starting or trying new things. Luckily I have great friends who want to show me what they do.”
Daphne Chao is a crochet artist with a crochet line called Ilyang Ilyang who got into the art when she was stuck in Bohol during the lockdown. With what started as friends wanting to make bikinis during the lockdown, turned into a hobby that isn’t going away. Since finding crocheting, she’s been creating and experimenting on all sorts of items like hats, cardigans, vests, and more!
What hobbies did you get into during the pandemic or lockdown? How did you stay creative and is it now part of your daily routine? We can’t wait to see the other videos in Massiah’s series and we look forward to learning along with him.
