Express yourself and take actions. If previously we have talked about creating your own tea, making your own flower wreath or even your own flower crown and becoming a Picasso of your own, this time round we will be talking about getting yourself covered in mud in a pottery session and deciding between creating a scent of your own or trying to find out the secret recipe of your favourite perfume.
Pottery has been gaining popularity in the past few years as it is believed to be able to improve our Sensory Development and at the same time, to improve creativity. There are many pottery classes for both adults and children that you can find in Singapore. If you do not intend to do a full course, some of them also offer short courses or a package where you can use their studio to work on your own project which is only valid within a period of time. Over here I have listed two suggested companies that give a good offer for you to consider.
The Potters’ guilt
Located in the North East of Singapore, The Potters’ Guilt offers a package where you can use their studio for your own project and it is called “OTOT (Open Studio)”. You will have to register to become the member first before you can make the booking within 48 hours in advance. You can only use clay that is purchased there but you can bring back excess clay with you. There are two different packages that you can choose from, a single session of 3 hours or a package of 10 sessions. Other than their own time, own target package, they also offer short workshops that you can choose from.
School of Clay Arts
Focusing on traditional craft techniques, School of Clay Arts offers foundation courses for beginners as well as facilitating casual hobbyists. There are some equipment that you can utilize in the studio such as potter’s wheels, slab-roller and chamber kilns. On top of that you can hire SOCA expertise for glazing & firing your art piece at an affordable price per 100g. For more activities such as team bonding, group pottery parties or other activities that you can think of, you can reach them directly to enquire.
2. Customised perfume/fragrance design
Ever wonder what is your favourite fragrance made up from? Curious on how to make your own essential oils without risking other living creatures? We have listed out two companies that do workshops on perfumery, essential oils and even candling!
Oo La Lab
Three workshops that are offered by Oo La Lab are perfumery, candling and essential oils. Deconstructing complex fragrances is not something unusual for them. You can improvise your favourite scents and shape it more to your characteristic from the primary building blocks of scents. Oo La Lab’s workshops vary from 60 to 90 minutes and you can choose between private and public run with different benefits for each type.
Perfume Workshop Singapore
Specialised in Orchid scents to create essential oils for your perfume, Perfume Workshop Singapore will make sure that you have to do a perfume personality test before you start the workshop in order to help you determine which essence suit your personality best. There are five types of scents that are associated with our pleasure, fun, loving, solitude and belonging personality, namely “Citrus”, “Fresh”, “Floral”, “Woody” and “Oriental”. Two of its popular workshops are meant for couple and team building.
