September Makers' Camp - holiday workshops for the young
Regular priceSale price
Makers' Camp returns this September holidays. Are you in?
When school is out, this is the place to be. We welcome all young makers — from 7 to 17 — to join us in these fun and challenging projects to make all kinds of wonderful.
GOOD TO KNOW: In every workshop, children learn in a structured and meaningful way, before attempting a take-home project. The artistic quality of the take-home project depends on each person's creativity and willingness to apply what they learnt.

'@Kilat' Same street, different view. This new ninja hide-out is a walk-up at level two!
Each maker receives a Maker's Tote. After every workshop, makers also take home the curated Craft Kit of the day, class worksheets and their completed craft/art pieces.
Who will be teaching these workshops?
We are a small team of artists and crafters. This Makers' Camp is designed by Ruth, who is a former school teacher, and also Mom to a teen, a tween and a toddler. She is the lead instructor in the Makers' Camp programme.
Am I allowed to sign up for more than one "Watercolour Brush Lettering" session?
Yes, children signed up for more than 1 session of the same title will be enjoying different project challenges in the subsequent sessions. Don't worry, they won't be repeating the same material!
Do you have a minimum age requirement? Are children split into different age groups?
The minimum age requirement is 7 years. We do not accept children younger than 7. Older children and teens can be assigned complex projects. During the hands-on component, they can choose to work independently at their favourite corner of the studio.
Do you provide any snacks? Do you offer a lunch option?
Yes, we have available light bites, juice and water that children can help themselves to during break time. But no, we do not provide any lunch.
Is the class fun? Do you have rules?
Only if your idea of fun is hands-on creativity! We design each project to stir up the makers' creative juices, train them to be observant, and to pick up a new skill. We do expect everyone to be respectful of others and to listen attentively to instructions. Please note that we do not allow them to use handphones or other mobile devices during the workshops.
Do you allow parents to sit in the programme? Can I just sit quietly in a corner and wait for my child?
No, parents are not allowed to sit in the programme, or to stay in our studio once the programme begins. When children know their parents are around, they tend to not pay attention to instructions; they miss out tremendously on the creative process. Please leave your children in our hands, and let us take care of their learning. Our studio is located in a foodie's dream of a neighbourhood. Have some child-free me-time in a cafe or eatery nearby!
Do you issue certificates? Can my child learn to become an artist in this programme?
We do not issue certificates as this is not a formal training programme. We would be happy to share with you our observations of your child's preferences, style and improvement. We are not in a hurry for anyone to become an artist, but we are eager to nurture that creative spark in your children!
Your mobile number is required for text messaging only. Email and/or text message (SMS or WhatsApp) is sent to all participants before the commencement of this workshop.
