2 Dec 2017 - Pressed Edible Botanicals Workshop (Ektory X Mamakan)

from 189.00

Date: 2 Dec 2017, Saturday
Time: 10am to 1pm

Experience the unique combination of local edible botanicals with handcrafted art.

Join us on a tour with our friendly Niven Road neighbor, Mamakan, a Danish/Singaporean contemporary artist, as she brings us to her urban home garden to discover and learn about our local edible florals and plants. From this experience, you will be able to gain useful knowledge on how to identify local trees and plants we are surrounded with everyday and the background of Singapore's botanical history. Here’s a fun fact - Did you know that 'Niven Road’ was coincidentally named after the first superintendent of the Singapore Botanical Gardens?

After the tour, we will relax and enjoy some tea together before we get creative in Ektory studio - where our Founder, Dawn, will teach you how to style and preserve these edible plants as a piece of educational art for your home or office. Scientific names of these botanicals will be printed on labels made from eco-friendly paper, as part of the framed art. The flowers and plants will be harvested two weeks in advance by Mamakan, pressed by us, and then provided during the workshop for this activity. 

We can’t wait to meet you at this unique workshop we have put together!

Through interactive and immersive art experiences, Mamakan’s works encourages us to discover new connections with nature, our senses, ourselves and each other. Mamakan is a synthesis of three words: “Mama,” for mother nature, and “makan", for the act of eating and also, "home". How can we grow roots, if we never eat from the soil? By sensing the plants that are rooted in the places we live, we can hope—even if it is only temporary—to internalize their sense of gravity and connectedness.
