What if things appeared and reappeared purely from the tips of our fingers? And remembering and forgetting became a buffet for the imagination? Feast your eyes and fingers on a creative kueh-making session by visual artist Mrydette, conducted in a delectable universe of her creation.

Learn to make your own homemade colourful playdough and specialty “kueh” from scratch with basic ingredients from the kitchen. Bring a tupperware to store and air dry your creations at home!

Mary Bernadette Lee (Mrydette) is an artist based in Singapore. Her practice is a phenomenological approach to understanding the relationship between exterior topography of body, architecture and place, and the interior tapestry of psychological states. Her work thrives on spontaneity of individual autonomy in art making. She believes Art should be accessible and as such, uses Art as a medium to work with children and the underprivileged to encourage expression and creation.

Goodbye Animals: Workshop and Storytelling with Darel Seow
22 (Friday) & 30 (Saturday) March, 10.30am to 12.00pm
The Substation Theatre

For ages 7 to 12

We might not have lions (except in tales), but Singapore used to be home to many wild tigers and leopards! At this workshop for ages 7 to 12, Darel introduces you to some local endangered and extinct animals that we share this island with. You’ll learn how to draw them and create a simple pop-up diorama which will explore our impact on the environment and the relationship we have with our non-human neighbours.

Darel is a visual storyteller who illustrates the tales of the natural world through his unique brand of wry wit and whimsy. He believes in the draw of storytelling as a means of engagement, creating experiences that simultaneously excite and educate. Particularly interested in museums and culture, he has worked with art, cultural, and educational institutions to encourage learning through the power of imagination and play.
