|Some of the sample & patterns available in his workshop|
Having a small workshop in his backyard and living in a small village, Abd Rahman did not know how to market his work and didn't see the bigger potential of his skill. After having some nice chat and looking to his art work, we can see how skillful and talented Abd Rahman is and we, then decided to help him in every way that we could.
|Most of the design & drawings is done by his wife|
Verbally, my friend in Berita Harian already agreed to help. The next step is for me to prepare the article and pictures and submit to Berita Harian. That, I will do within this month.
The second step is actually to help him to get any sort of financial support (from Mara etc) to grow his business.
The third step is to help him create and manage a facebook account special for his business.
and the final step is to design and sell products that we can order from him such as bedroom light, tabletop display and mirror with frames to help him sustain with his business.
I will share more about this project (including more pictures) very soon!
Update (11.05.2012): Story about Abd Rahman will be published in Berita Harian very soon. Now, we are moving to the second step! :)
