About the Workshop:

These intricate tiles can be found in the form of artistic panels at entrances, along hallways, and courtyards.

In this workshop, participants create their own Peranakan tile. From a variety of templates featuring Peranakan motifs and symbols, they will trace and transfer these onto a plain tile. They will be guided on painting techniques as well as characteristics of the Peranakan colour palette.

Participants will go home with a personalized decorative tile design!
