Nature Design Museum @SingaporeDesignWeek

Description
LOVE NATURE + TILE MAKING

Taking a detour from man-made objects, we will look towards nature for design learning. The workshop will explore how the basic concept of form follows function is reflected in the design of the countless different patterns of leaves, flowers and seeds found in nature.

Offering a true sensorial experience, the event space will be converted into a mini Nature Design Museum and we will share stories on design innovation found in nature. This will be followed by a hands-on clay tile making workshop, the attendees will get to choose their favorite specimen from the museum collection and record its special features in clay as a take home inspiration.

Open to all above the age of 12, we hope to inspire a sense of awe and wonder for the abundance found in nature and inspire true goals to preserve our environment. During the workshop, the attendees will get a crash course in clay hand-building and tile-making. Clay is a tool that is ‘slow’ and enhances greater attention, observation and care. This is missing in today’s digital world and Instagram frenzy. We hope that this kind of ‘slow’ approach will impart a true appreciation and love for the environment resulting in citizens being more interested in sustainability goals and saving the planet.
