Pre-war Singapore is difficult to imagine these days with our current Singapore so modernized. Take a trip down Singapore in the past and how it may have looked like by doing a Clay Play (NeuroCeramics®) session at the dragon kiln based on the local book called 'The House on Palmer Road' by Si-Hoe S.S. and Sim Ee Waun. Each station at the dragon kiln would encompass significant events from the book such as frog hunting, escaping fierce guard geese, visiting a 'coolie room', and heading off on other exciting adventures in pre-war colonial Singapore, all using clay!
Join Da Vinci Group as we create a unique experience like no other! Hop on our unique Dragon Kiln Tour as we bring your little ones through the history and heritage of one of the oldest surviving brick-built kilns in Singapore. You and your children will be introduced to clay, ceramics, and the firing process in this 1.5 hour session.
You will also have a hands-on free play session where you will get the opportunity to touch, feel, explore and appreciate the clay medium. To conclude the tour, children will create their very own ceramic coaster using high grade air-dry clay flown in from the UK.

Clay as a medium makes one present and engaged in the moment, which is critical to the process of learning. Our curriculum is developed to expose children to multiple concepts and to enhance learning through clay. The ceramic products created through our curriculum serve as trigger points for participants to remember the concepts introduced.
