4. Upcycle your wardrobe

Get more out of your clothes without breaking the bank by upcycling them – taking existing garments and transforming them into something new.

Bring two or three old garments and explore different techniques to breathe new life into them.  Agatha of Green Issues by Agy will share tricks on how to make your clothes last longer.

5. Paint old-school snacks in watercolour

Book yourself into this super fun and yummy workshop – think old-school push-pops, White Rabbit candy, Haw Flakes, Twisties and Mamee, painted onto archival quality English, Italian and Australian papers.

Each attendee will receive their very own watercolouring kit which they can then bring home and continue painting with after the class.

Bring along at least 4 to 5 local snacks of your choice.  The more the merrier!

6. Watch your favourite Noose characters live

“The Noose” is going from the small screen to a stage performance, accompanied by some of the best stand-up comedians from Singapore and Malaysia, such as Kumar and Harith Iskander.

They will cover hot topics on both sides of the causeway, including that certain neighbour who has been so generous in providing both countries with 11 months of fresh air annually.
