Working as a team, parent and child will learn crafting techniques to create a clay figure using child-friendly Nylon Clay. You will also learn more about how the late Singaporean artist and Cultural Medallion recipient Ng Eng Teng explored and experimented to create sculptures, maquettes, vessels and ceramic forms. At the end of the session, each team will get to bring home their clay figurine!

About the Artist:
Chew Seow Phuang was mesmerised by the pliable body of clay that he gave up practicing as an interior designer and turned full time ceramicist. He feels that it is the responsibility of an artist to make a statement through their art whether it is about the use of form, texture or colour. Seow Phuang's works have been showcased in several local and international exhibitions such as the Hong Kong's First Lantau Arts Festival in 2004. He is an Associate Member of the Institute of Professional Designer (London), The Craft Potters Association (UK) and a committee member of the Kampong Glam Ceramic Club.

Children's Season 2014 is jointly presented by National Heritage Board and Museum Roundtable.
