Online Upcycling Workshop: Turning Tshirt into Totebags!

June 2021 – I love teaching upcycling art and craft workshops as it is really all about helping the environment by reusing what we already have and t-shirts are a great way to upcycle them into useful items such as bags, dress, coasters and jewellery even!

Here in this online workshop with Woodlands RN, their residents are really happy to contribute in creating a greener and environmentally-friendly world! Check out their creations!

Community Brush Lettering Programme

24 + 25 April 2021 – ArtStories x Bedok CC collaborated in a Community Brush Lettering Programme to engage Bedok South Residents to partake in pening down inspirational quotes and motivational messages for the community.

The two-day workshop with ArtStories resulted in a unique, personalised calligraphy work helmed by both young and elderly, families and friends. Even incumbent DPM Heng Swee Keat graced his presence at the event and contributed his own art piece! We were honoured!

All 300 pieces of the artwork has been scanned, printed and pasted on forex boards of 15cm x 15cm which will then be installed onto the walls and pillars of various blocks around the neighbourhood of Bedok South.

I am honoured and delighted to contribute art to my neighbourhood! I will share photos of the installed works in the public spaces once it is ready! Meanwhile, enjoy these lovely photos of the artworks and residents.

Mason Jar Painting with Fairy Lights

24 April 2021 – I has a fun workshop with the children from Serangoon Gardens Country Club. I conducted a Mason Jar Painting with Fairy lights workshop where the children get to learn how to use stained-glass paints and how to paint on glass effectively.

When the children inserted the lights into their Jars, their eyes lighted up as brightly as the lights! They were delighted at the sight of the bright fairy lights and they told me they will be putting the jar beside their bed as a nightlight before bed.

I wonder what beautiful dreams these children will dream of. 🙂

This workshop is popular with children and adults. Resin Jewellery workshop is open for bookings for the upcoming June Holidays too.

Jalan Berseh Mural of Singapore River

Nov 2020 – Feb 2021: We were commissioned to paint a special mural for the new garden of Blk 25, Jalan Berseh in the theme of Singapore River/Waterfront scene.

Inspired by Artist Goh Chye Kee, a painter who paints mostly landscapes of Singapore, we had fused our mural with our own painting style/technique.

The mural started in November 2020 but due to consistent heavy downpour rains in Dec/Jan, a typical mural of 8 metres in length would have been completed in 2 – 3 weeks have now taken us until February 2021 to complete.

The mural is painted in a mix of wall paints and acrylic paints, varnished and sealed with lacquer to last the mural 2 years and more in an outdoor setting without direct exposure to bright sunlight.

I did not manage to capture many photos of our work in progress or the final mural, therefore these are the photos I have of the mural for now. If you wish to visit the mural, do head down to BLK 25, JALAN BERSEH OUTDOOR GARDEN to enjoy the mural in its entirety.

Mural painted in collaboration with Fiq Adella from Technique Movement Artworks and Dana Tan.

Chinese New Year Lantern Zoom Workshop

9th February 2021 – I conducted a Chinese New Year Lantern Workshop via Zoom for a corporate group to celebrate the upcoming Lunar New Year. Some participants brought along their children to the session and some participants were first time makers in this craft.

It was a pleasure to teach them this skill to enable them to decorate their homes with festive decorations. They learn how to make a 5 point star flower lantern and a more complicated ball lantern using Red Packets/Ang Pao packets.

Here are some photos of the lanterns we made but I could not screenshot the Zoom session then.
