Tic Tac Chope – Sewing workshop

Kids Workshop 2 CHOPE! Tissue Holder

Tic-Tac-CHOPE! Tissue Holder (Beginner Level)

11th July, 2pm-3.30pm Register at!store/c1079

For most Singaporeans, the tissue pack has an additional function other than to clean one’s mouth after a meal: to chope (reserve) seats with. Nowhere else in the world is the tissue pack used for such a purpose except in Singapore. Why not celebrate this unique practice of ours by sewing a distinctive ‘chope already’ tissue holder, where the flip side is a tic-tac-toe grid where you can play the game with your friend while waiting for your food at a kopitiam?

This is a beginner sewing workshop: no prior sewing experience needed. Suitable for children (9 years and above) and adults.

Craft in the City – by POPIN

POPIN Craft The City project  sample

11th July, 4pm-7pm
12th July, 3pm-6pm
Free. No pre-registration required.

Craft the City, POPIN’s community art project for 2015, invites everyone to contribute to building a miniature cityscape. The elements in the cityscape could be inspired by real places in our surroundings or from memories. They could also be completely imaginary- a creative take of what you associate with the city or things you hope to see in the city.

There will be craft gatherings open to the public to make little building blocks using a variety of crafttechniques including: painting on wooden blocks, cut¬out cardboard constructions and sewn embellishment on felt blocks. We hope the public will enjoy the slow process of crafting as well as the creativity and interaction that happens during the gatherings.
