Event: PAssion Arts Festival Craft Workshops at Punggol

WahSoSimple was thrilled to craft at another PAssion Arts Festival Village. We started our Saturday morning on 5 August 2017 bright and early and joined the residents at Punggol Damai estate. They had gathered for a morning to celebrate our Nation's 52nd Birthday and made some crafts together. It was a very bright and vibrant morning in every sense! The residents were all decked in red as they mingled at the various craft tables, making something beautiful with their family and friends!


We ran 3 crafting booths:

  • Glass Marble Magnets - Residents made a pair of glass marble magnets with special designs under the theme of 'Breakfast in Singapore'. We saw visuals of nasi lemak, kaya toast, Milo peng, hot kopi and more breakfast yummies made into practical magnets.
  • Shrink Art Tags - 'Everyday Objects' was the theme of this shrink art activity. Residents coloured Singaporean everyday objects like a phone, umbrella, pair of flip-flops, ice-cream cone, soccer ball, coffee cup, etc onto pieces of shrink plastic and we 'baked' it on spot to create a useful tag for their bags, water bottles, pencil cases, etc.
  • Stamp A Fabric Bag: We made animal- and transport-themed stamps and residents stamped them onto fabric bags in their favourite colours.

All-in-all, it was a colourful and happy morning to celebrate Singapore's birthday! =)

Event: PAssion Arts Festival 2017: Making Candy Coloured Slime!

WahSoSimple ran a Slime Making workshop by the beach last weekend at the PAssion Arts Festival and the experience was simply fantastic! Making slime is fun, but making it amidst the company of fellow slime lovers by the beach made the entire experience a million times better!

                                                    Mesmerised by her slime creation

We were part of the the inaugural Pasir Ris Beach Arts community festival - where Pasir Ris beach was transformed into a giant Candy Bubble Land filled with oversized candies, community music and art and craft activities. There were so many slime lovers hand making their very own slime with us. Everyone had great fun, frantically stirring their concoction and watch their handmade slime created before their very eyes. The response we received was overwhelming. We are so happy that our friends who came to join us had as much fun as us. We had quite a number of adults who made their own stress buster slime balls to squish, a perfect alternative to the traditional stress ball.


If you are a keen to have a slime party or a slime making workshop, do reach out to us at hello@wahsosimple.com  We will be more than happy to come make some slime and bring fun to your upcoming event!

Event: Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre Grand Opening: Crafting of Chinese Themed Glass Marble Magnets

We were really happy to be part of the opening ceremony of the very impressive Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre. This centre is created with the vision to promote Chinese culture which are Singapore Centric.

WahSoSimple was tasked to create a craft activity for the guests at the event. We drew inspiration from our rich and unique Singapore Chinese heritage with our glass marble magnets craft. Participants had fun making their very own pair of Glass Marble Magnets with the various designs prepared for them. They chose from the selection of Chinese Zodiac Animals, Oriental themed flowers and the range of delicious Chinese snacks.


It was a fascinating night to remember, crafting with distinguished guests at this grand opening, not forgetting the talented children from the Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan. The children came to craft with us after their impressive Chinese poetry recital for the guest of honour for the evening, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and the invited guests for the evening.


We love to tailor make themed crafts, and share the joy of crafting at events. Do reach out to us at  hello@wahsosimple.com  if you think we can help you bring some fun to your upcoming event.

Till our next blog, craft something beautiful! =)

Craft Workshop: Upcycling Plastic Food Packaging into Zipper Pouches

Used plastic packaging turned zipper pouch for my charging cables!

We have just learnt a startling fact recently. Plastic is all around us and we really cannot live without it. It is a basic need, just like food, air, water and probably wifi too. In Singapore, we generated a staggering amount of 822,000 tonnes (source: NEA) of plastic waste in 2016. This accounted for 10% of the waste we generated last year. Sadly, only 7% of this plastic waste were recycled. 

We believe that every effort to reduce, reuse and recycle counts. We went to a secondary school this week to share with the students how they can upcycle used plastic food packaging into attractive zipper pouches. There was absolutely no sewing required. The students learnt how to hand make their very own zipper pouches, from the used food packaging that they had salvaged from home. These hand made pouches will be given to their teachers for the upcoming Teachers' Day. This is truly a meaningful hand made work of love for the special someone who inspires, guides, enlightens, motivates them.

If you are interested in organising an upcycling workshop with your friends, family or colleagues, do drop us an email at hello@wahsosimple.com and we will arrange something for you.



Till our next post, make something practical with your hands! =)
