Hello there… I am April San Pedro, a Graphic Designer by profession and a Crafter by heart based in the Philippines.

Last July 8, 2009, I opened a dainty store called Artisan Craft+Design Studio.

Also… I managed a family owned coffee shop named Coffee at Yellow Hauz with my sister Sandy. Once in awhile, I work as a barista there. And it’s one of my favourite workspace.
By heart, I just love making things with my hands. From making jewelry, clay, carving rubber stamps and paper flowers. But my favourite is playing with paper and my laptop as my canvas and tool. I like to combine both tradition and contemporary with my designs.
This blog is a creative outlet for me… a place where I share all the designs and crafts I make in my studio and sometimes what’s happening in my life. Though my life may be a bit boring but I do hope you’ll get inspired with what I do instead. Welcome to my creative realm…

  8. Hello April, now I know your name. I’m Odette and it was my first time to visit your coffee shop and studio last Monday(01/25/16). I really want to join the workshop this Saturday but I can’t because I still have to go to my classes and I don’t have the money for the registration fee *cries*. But I’m keeping in touch now that I found your blog and fb page. And I’m definitely going back to your coffee shop and art studio soon. I’m also looking forward for more of your workshops. And oh, one of your employees is my college friend. More power and God bless!

  9. Hello April!

    I’m wondering if you still do workshops in Davao this year? If so, do you have a list of what kind of workshops?

    I’m really interested to attend workshops that has to do with arts and crafts. Like you, i really like tinkering with papers…but I’m more into origami and paper flowers.
