Be inspired by Peranakan tile designs. The Peranakan community is known for their shophouses decorated with beautiful and ornate tiles. These intricate tiles can be found in the form of artistic panels at entrances, along hallways, and courtyards. Motifs such as birds, fish, fruits, flowers, and auspicious symbols are often featured on the tiles. In this workshop, add a twist to tradition and reinterpret the tile designs with your own style!
