The Balvenie House of Craft
The Balvenie House of Craft is an Open House assembly of some of the best-in-class and aspiring craftsmen, artisans and creators from Singapore and Asia. Happening over four weekends in September, the pop-up event is the first ever public showcase of crafts by talented local makers.
Specially curated by craft purveyors The General Company, The Balvenie House of Craft comprises showcases, hands-on craft workshops, supper club dinners, film screenings and community talks. The free public open house will take place at an old industrial block at King George’s Avenue for four weekends on every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the month of September.
Notable participating craftsmen include marquage painter Cherin Sim, embroidery artist Teresa Lim, hand-lettering artist Ewe Jin Tee, floral artist Josephine Lau, among many others. These young generation craftsmen pursuing various heritage trades will come together and showcase their works and share their experiences to give the public a better insight into what they do and why they are doing it.
During the Open House weekends, the public can look forward to an exciting line-up of activities and visual treats, including free cinema screenings of indie short films, art installations and showcases. For those interested to learn more about the crafts, they can participate in a series of educational demonstrations, as well as join an intimate craft workshop where they can get up close and personal with the local craftsmen and get a glimpse into their inside world and inspirations.
There will be also an open bar featuring cocktails concocted using The Balvenie, as well as complimentary whisky tastings, supper club dinners featuring young local chefs. Top local bartenders such as Peter Chua (Junior) and Gabriel Martin Escoto Carlos (Manhattan Bar) will be pouring some tipples on guest shifts on Friday evenings from 8pm to 11pm.
