In the Making is a ceramic art workshop that provides participants the skills and the space to uncover and express their identities through conversation, personal reflection and the art of ceramics. The workshop is modelled on Body/Language, a successful creative writing initiative run by We Can! Singapore, designed to start conversations about gender-based violence.
Participants will have the chance to showcase their work at a public exhibition later in the year.
Important: There is a minimum (and maximum!) and number of participants required for these workshops to be run. Please only sign up if you can confirm your attendance for ALL dates! Thank you!
The "In The Making" Approach
Every one of us is a complicated bundle of our own histories, emotions and experiences. But societal expectations and prejudices mean that we don’t always get to hear our stories told, or to tell them ourselves. In The Making is rooted in the simple belief that all our stories should be respected, and that art-making is a worthwhile and effective way of telling them.
In The Making is developed by EtiquetteSG and We Can! Singapore. This workshop is open to people of all genders.
Session 1: Introduction of concepts and issues surrounding identity, including gender, sharing of personal experiences, discussion of social concerns, and the creation of a personalised ceramic bowl that will be used in the following week’s session.
Session 2: Prompt-based exercises designed to help continue conversations that were initiated in the previous week. Conversations will occur over a communal meal served to the participants by the facilitators, in the bowls that were made the week before.
Session 3: The creation of a personalised ceramic tile, designed to encompass the participants’ feelings, thoughts, hopes and fears about the issues that have been discussed.
Session 4: Glazing (colouring) of the ceramic tiles that were created the week before, a sum-up discussion about what has been covered.
In addition, a collective exhibition showcasing works created over three workshops is planned for a later date. Participants are encouraged to share the works they have made with the public, by participating in the exhibition.
Participants are strongly encouraged to attend All sessions of the workshop. Please only sign up if you can make it for All sessions as there are limited slots!
