Chairs for Charity
|Chairs for Charity is a creative art project involving mixed-media and hand-painting on little wooden stools to raise funds for Charity.
Started in 2013 in Shanghai China, the first edition saw 18 creative stools painted in a time span of one year and raised over 2000 USD for Make-a-Wish International in the form of a charity auction. Inspiration of the chairs comes from everything in our environment, such as events, objects and people.

|Chairs for Charity Workshop
For the first time in Singapore, Chairs for Charity invites you to join us in our workshop to paint your very own mini chair (13cm diameter) for charity.
The organisation you will be supporting is Club Rainbow, a dedicated team that provides compassionate services to chronically ill children and their families. A minimum donation of $50 to Club Rainbow is required to participate in this workshop.
At the workshop, you will be provided with all art materials, some design templates to choose from and artistic guidance if you require any. You are also free to customise and create any design you like!
Regardless of your experience or level of artistic creativity, you can participate in this meaningful activity and bring your chair masterpiece home while supporting a charity in this season of giving.

On the recommendation of their respective doctors, these children are referred to Club Rainbow for follow up support.
Paper in my Attic
|Paper in my Attic was born out of the love of paper, inspired by many artists, works and projects. Turning a hobby into a passion, PIMA aims to try and see how flexible and malleable this medium can be. Many of the works showcased here began as home projects and favours for friends.
Created by Rae Lim a self-taught paper artist who focused mostly on origami art. Her avid interest in origami as a young child led her to explore different folding techniques and paper designs. To Rae, creating paper art is just like play. She is still on a journey of exploration and discovery with other forms of paper art, from floras to installations. Now she produces commissioned art and collaborates with other artists.

The Plant Story
|Inspired by nature and fueled by design, The Plant Story is Singapore’s only urban gardening galleria spotting a workshop and a cafe for busy urbanites to reconnect with nature without the need to slog under the sun.
As Maslow hierarchy of needs would have it, Cath’s decision to set up The Plant Story in 2009 was propelled by her desire to live a life of significance at the peak of her 16-year career in advertising. Once a serial plant killer, her objective was simply to create an urban sanctuary where time stands still to bring hope and happiness to busy urbanites caught in the hurried world.
Since then, The Plant Story has brought smiles and happiness to people from all walks of lives; across all age groups (from 03 to 80 year olds); of different social status and races through the power of nature.
