Of You: Customise Glass Cups & Ceramic Mugs At This Workshop Cafe

Of You in Seoul


If you have ever bought a set of homeware but realised they don’t fit with the aesthetics of your kitchen at all, Of You offers a solution to this problem. Of You is a workshop cafe that teaches customers how to customise all sorts of cutlery, ranging from cups and glasses to plates and bowls, just with a few pieces of transfer and decal paper. 


Design your own homeware

To create their own designs, customers are given sheets of coloured decal and transfer paper, on which they can draw their desired designs or cut into different shapes.

After cutting out these designs, customers have to soak the sheets in water before sticking them onto the surface of their chosen piece of dining ware.

Customers who are less confident in their arts and crafts abilities need not fret as the cafe provides printed templates and shape punchers for use.

Customers can then send the glasses to Of You, where the staff will commence the last step of the procedure – kiln firing the pieces.
