5-6 Dec 2009: Clay IN-SIGHT Exhibition @ VivoCity Singapore
After many months of preparation, we finally realized the dream of holding a first-of-its-kind ceramic art exhibition that showcased co-creations by the VI Potters and the Volunteers. This exhibition was held on 5 & 6 Dec at the PaTH Market @ Vivocity. Thanks to the generous support provided by the Social Innovation Park, which organizes the PaTH Market.
This clay session was particularly productive. We announced the confirmation of our impending clay exhibition on 5 & 6 Dec at PaTH Market @ Vivocity. Everyone was excited as we gear up for the exhibition. We shall squeeze in a few more sessions over the coming 2 months.
Next lesson will be on 3 Nov 2009, 11am-1pm.
