Highlights
  • Discover the vibrant Peranakan culture
  • Connect with a passionate local artist

  • Experience the vibrant world of Peranakan artistry and ignite your own creative spark! Join Pei Lin, a Peranakan artist deeply connected to her heritage, as she guides you through the beautiful tradition of mini tingkat painting. Imagine the cheerful clatter of those stacked containers, filled with the aromas of home-cooked meals and the laughter of shared family moments. Each tingkat carries a touch of the past, a tangible piece of Singaporean heritage. Inspired by her teacher, a Nyonya elder, Pei Lin brings this nostalgic technique to life in her welcoming studio. Design your own keepsake tingkat, perfect for snacks, treasures, or a heartwarming reminder of this unique experience.
