BIG FUNFUN: Tee Up Kids Workshop with OIC Singapore
Sunday, 26 June 2016
2.00PM - 4.00PM
Keppel Centre for Art Education (Workshop 1 & 2)
National Gallery Singapore
Join OIC (Organisation of Illustrators Council) for a fun-filled Sunday afternoon and get your little tykes in on the sustainable fashion movement. At this workshop, kids bring their old t-shirts, dresses, shorts, pants and other clothes that they have outgrown or grown bored of to make them new again under the guidance of artist and illustrator Joycelyn Wong. An upcycling project, it allows them to create their own unique reconstructed wearables using the pieces they bring, before customising them with scraps of cloth and other materials. Older siblings’ tees can be made into a shirtdress, statement necklace or even a bag - time to dig out those hand-me-downs!
- Participants must bring some old clothes to work with, the more the merrier!
- Open to children aged 7 to 11 years old
OIC (Organisation of Illustrators Council)
OIC is based in Singapore and was founded by Mindflyer, Fleecircus and Drewscape in 2006. It is a platform for professional illustrators in Singapore to connect, collaborate, share ideas, get feedback for their work, exchange news and inspire each other. We love to collaborate with sociable like-minded creatives in making the illustration community in Asia more vibrant and interesting.
Joycelyn is an artist and illustrator who enjoys exploring creative applications for her drawing and acquires inspiration through sharing with others. She enjoys using an extremely colourful palette as seen in her murals and illustrations, and working with textures and across disciplines. Her previous work experiences include working as a graphic designer and an art educator. She has collaborated with Act3 International on their June holiday workshops for children at the Ion Sky Gallery and worked on specially commissioned projects by Food Republic, All Things N’ice, Passion Arts to produce artworks and murals. She is currently working on the illustrations for a series of children storybooks.
