Crafting for Christmas and for Charity at l’Observatoire

As most of you might know by now, “Isadora’s Workshop” is the crafty sister of “l’Observatoire”, an art-and-science place.

This Christmas Season, Isadora’s Workshop’s craft is happening at l’Observatoire where we are are mustering all the craft we can to bring some cheer to as many people as possible.

Come and make your Christmas cards, Christmas decorations and Christmas presents in a convivial atmosphere – all proceeds go to the Philippines Red Cross!

Here is a gallery of some of the crafts our volunteer artists will be demonstrating to inspire you:

So don’t delay, Come and join us this Sunday or any Sunday before Christmas, either as a volunteer, as an artist/maker/crafter or as a participant!

Holiday Program 2012

It’s that time of the year again!

School’s out and kids want to do things.

This year, all holiday activities take place at the new Observatoire at the Blue House in Bukit Timah.

You can sign up for Printmaking for one afternoon or morning (and come home with a set of Christmas cards) in December, or you can sign up for a week of Drawn to Nature camp (Observing nature and drawing inspiration from it) from 10th to 14th of December.

Either way, make sure you visit soon!

Wishing You a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Christmas Tree Opposite

A Green, Optical Christmas tree this year.

 A great thank you to all of you, students, anonymous followers, random passer-bys, friendly commentators, for helping keep this page going by stopping by and sending friendly comments once in a while! The New Year promises some surprises ahead, which I will not reveal yet…

In the meantime, please enjoy my cheeky, green greetings using “optical inks”. Please follow the instructions carefully and ask a child if you aren’t sure… they will know!

1. Find a Christmas card you have just received, and which has a blank back page. Keep that blank page handy.
2. Look at the picture attached. Focus on the top third of the tree somewhere, and look for about 30 seconds.
3. Now, quickly turn to your blank page. Your Christmas card should appear with all the right colours! And you can re-use the card…
4. With thanks to Eric Carle’s “Hello, Red Fox”
3. Merry Christmas!
