60 places you can sign up for workshops in Singapore to work in some fun

by Melo! SG on June 04, 2021

So, you can’t travel. And you can’t gather in large groups or dine out. And you have to abide by those safe-distancing rules. You wonder: How long will this last? When can the fun resume?

We may not have the answer to the former. But we certainly have plenty of ideas for the latter. There are few fun things you can transcend good times as well as tough ones and attending workshops and classes is one of them.

It is fun, safe and meaningful. What is more, workshops and classes are perfect for self-improvement. Whatever skills you pick up can last you a lifetime.

These days, there are so many to choose from, you will be spoilt for choice. We know you are perfectly capable of finding the usual workshops that teach cooking, baking, various forms of dance, art and crafts, and different sports.

But there is a slew of other types of workshops you can book a spot at that will raise your eyebrows and be conversation starters. We have 60 such out-of-the-ordinary workshops that will expand your horizon and spark your imagination.

So, get interested, get going and get learning.

Get crafty

  1. Get crafty with clay

    If you’ve ever enjoyed playing with Polly Pocket or loved watching Tastemade’s Tiny Kitchen creations on Instagram where miniature food is cooked to the minutest of details, then you will be delighted by Tinkle Art’s workshops.

    The social enterprise specialises in classes that teach you how to make miniature clay replicas of food items down to the tiniest aspects. The Kimchi Jjigae workshop lets you make an entire Korean set meal complete with a drink. For a local spin, learn to make a perfect itsy-bitsy bowl of wanton mee (noodles with barbecue pork slices and dumplings) that comes with a pair of chopsticks artfully floating in the air.

    The miniature food sculpting workshops are every creative foodie’s dream come true. It is craft and cuisine rolled into one three-hour hands-on session. You will also be doing a good deed because Trinkle Arts supports the underprivileged. So, even as you are picking up a fun skill, you will be helping someone in need.

    If you want to take home not just something you can display with pride but wear with style, Hands on Klay is where you want to sign up at. In three-and-a-half hours, you will be able to fashion earrings made of clay to take home with you.

    Each workshop also teaches design skills such as creating 2-D and 3-D floral patterns, and marbling and swirling techniques. This will let you decorate your very own one-of-a-kind accessory. If earrings are not quite your thing, you can make brooches and even hair barrettes or turn your earring into a Christmas ornament for the festive season.

    At the workshop, you will have access to a massive collection of clay of some 40 odd different colours as well as crafting material such as ribbons, glitter, pompoms and tassels. These will enhance your clay wearable art.

    Don’t assume that this is a women-only workshop. Few women would not want a pair of bespoke earrings made by their significant other. So, men, take heed.

  2. Get crafty with leather

    If you still think making earrings are a tad to girly for your taste, try your hand at making leather products. At Crafune, you can pick up leathercraft skills in just a few hours.

    There are several different leather workshops you can attend. If you are just starting out, go small and make accessories. In a single session, you will get to make a key holder, coin pouch and card holder. You can personalise your product by debossing or hot-stamping initials, names, dates and even whole phrases.

    Feeling more ambitious? Then, head for the workshops that will teach you to make wallets, handbags, tote bags and even backpacks. You will be a regular Kate Spade when you are done.

    By the time you are done, you will not only have a lovely leather product to take home, you will have acquired the knowledge to take care of your leather goods.

    It may sound complex but the workshops are suitable even for children.

  3. Get crafty with metal

    If working with leather conjures up medieval craft, then working with metal will surely excite those interested in participating in a slice of history.

    At Fat Anvil Studios, you can become a silversmith and come away with customised earrings, cufflinks, necklaces, pendants or bracelets.

    One of the most unique and romantic workshops they offer is a couples workshop where you can make your own his and hers rings. Using 925 sterling silver, you can purchase gemstones to add bling to your ring.

    There is even a wedding band workshop where you can make your own 18k palladium white, rose or yellow gold forever accessory.

    Artisan8 Studio is a metalworking studio that conducts jewellery and metalworking workshops. What sets it apart from others is that it offers classes that use different material and techniques.

    Noteworthy is their Torch & Kiln Enamelling workshop. Enamelling is the art of applying colour to metal jewellery by fusing coloured glass powder onto the surface of the metal. The metal is than exposed to high temperatures – 760 degrees Celsius – to seal in the colour.

    At this class, you will get to hand-saw your own copper shape before fusing it with glass enamels by using a hand torch or kiln. You can make two pairs of earrings or four pendants or key rings.

  4. Get crafty with rubber

    If you are keen to make your own mark, a rubber stamp carving workshop might just be what you need.

    Artefakts will teach you how to carve your own stamps so that you can make your own prints. Their Peranakan motif stamps are uniquely Singaporean and will surely add a touch of local culture to your greeting cards, journals and scrapbooks.

    Not all craft workshops deal with pretty, girly things. Some deal with quite manly material. Concrete Everything, as its name suggests, is a local design studio that creates unique pieces primarily from concrete although they have since expanded to include items made with resin and jesmonite.

    Fancy a concrete desk lamp or stationary holder to add masculine charm to your office? How about a concrete planter to bring Nature indoors?

    They have both physical and virtual classes so Covid-19 safe distancing measures are not an issue.

  9. Get crafty with glass

    How would you like to decorate your home with your own glass creations – art installations, vases or lamps. Now you can at Art Class Katong.

Here are some handmade things you can have a go at.

  1. Make your own soap

    Soap Ministry is a pioneer in the use of natural ingredients in skincare products. Started by Diana Ong in her search for products that her daughter suffering from severe eczema could tolerate, now she is sharing her expertise so others can create their own natural soaps.

    Now, you can make your own clay mask at FRANKSKINCARE. You will get to blend a range of botanical and clay ingredients, and understand the benefits and science behind each ingredient and how they can help your skin type. All the dos and don’ts you need to customise your own mask will be taught and you can bring home a jar of your own specially created clay mask blend to continue your facial treatment at home.

Get skilled

  1. Fishing

    Who knew there was so much more to fishing than dropping the line and waiting for the fish to take the bait? If you have ever felt the frustration of the fish not biting, then you might want to hone your fishing skills.

    My Fishing Frenzy Academy offers fishing workshops of varying levels. For the uninitiated, start with the Beginner Angler’s Course. Take a ride to Lazarus Island and be introduced to the basic theory and practical steps of fishing. The whole day affair will make for a lovely out-of-the-mainland excursion.

    Once done, you can go on to learn about fishing in the open sea at the Novice Angler’s Course. Fishing in the sea lets you haul in bigger fish and is much harder than fishing on land because of the conditions that need to be taken into account – the wind, currents and the undulating seabed. Intermediate and advanced courses are available, too.

  2. Juggling

    How hard is it to keep three balls in the air? Maybe a little practise would make juggling easier. If you have tried it on your own and failed, though, join a workshop at JimmyJuggler. Jimmy was the master who taught a core team of crowd motivators to juggle for the Singapore National Day Parade 2008 and he can teach you, too.

    It is not just for clowning around though. Juggling has several benefits including increasing brain power; improving concentration, coordination and rhythm; and enhancing mobility and spatial awareness. Plus, it is a great way to relieve stress and so much fun.

  3. Magic
