Peranakan Printing & Japanese Alumni Friends

What happens when you get a group of Japanese alumni friends and neighbours together in Singapore? Lots of fun and laughter, and some beautiful Peranakan inspired prints!

I really enjoyed creating my very own design. The workshop was lots of fun!

Working out how to create my own design and colour combination was enjoyable. I found the workshop was not too easy or difficult - a great fit. Thanks very much!

Peranakan Cultural Ambassadors - the Next Japanese Generation

The next generation of Peranakan culture lovers! A group of budding Japanese artists recently produced some gorgeous work in a private printing workshop. With English up their sleeve, these kids may well be future ambassadors for Peranakan culture in ways we can't imagine. 

Also a mother, I love seeing the confidence and sense of wonder on my kids' faces when we do art together. I recently held a private workshop for parents and kids to learn some Peranakan inspired printmaking. It was lovely to see parents designing and creating with one or even two of their children! 

I enjoyed being able to work out my design and choose my own colours. The content of this workshop was just right for my 8-year-old child and he enjoyed it.
