Local Tour: Crafts & Birdsongs in the Heartland

Date Thursday, April 29
Time 9.00am to 1.00pm (approximately)
Venue Newton Food Centre Car Park
$85.00 Member  $105.00 Guest

Come on this tour to visit the last remaining businesses that still fashion their wares by hand, a rarity in Singapore indeed!

Your first stop is a business that stocks an amazing array of paper offerings that are burnt for the Gods, Ancestors and Ghosts. Be awed by the big beautiful robes, houses and colourful horses, all made of paper.

Heard of the interesting hobby of Bird Singing? Come & see  for yourself and be serenaded by these wonderful ‘Song Birds’, right in the HBD heartlands of Ang Mo Kio, where one of the largest of the Bird Singing corners in Singapore is located. This is where the birds get to train their vocal chords and you can chat with the ‘uncles’ who love their birds. You will visit a bird cage maker who is also a ‘bird sitter’!

Have you watched Lion Dances and marvelled at the colourful Lion Heads? You are privileged to meet the last remaining craftsman who makes the Lion Heads from his HDB home. You can even order one of his beautifully crafted Lion Heads as a collector’s item.

Finally, we will learn about those giant incense sticks with their colourful decorations seen at the temples. Hear from the ‘horse’s mouth’ about how they are made and you can have fun by having a go at using the raw materials for the incense to fashion your own creation. This tour will end at Newton Food Centre.

 This tour is non-refundable.
