We had 2 sessions of workshops on the opening day of Uniqlo flagship store. The first workshop was at 10am and while setting up, we could sense the excitement of more than a thousand shoppers lining up outside the store. Our participants got to design and paint their very own Polkaros pots. Special thanks to Uniqlo for sponsoring the workshops and to everyone who signed up! Here are some pictures of how it turned out!
We are very honored to be part of the private opening event of Uniqlo’s first flagship store in Singapore/South East Asia. The brief was to host a 15 minutes workshop for 60 pax. This was our first time doing something in that scale and I was excited to take up the challenge! After some brainstorming, I finally decided to do a mini pot brooch painting workshop for the event. It was a busy and fun night sharing my craft with the guests. Everyone was so creative and it was interesting to see everyone’s interpretation of my mini pots. Here are some pictures from that night!
I have always been a big fan of Uniqlo so I was excited when asked to be a part of their new campaign celebrating the first global flagship store in Southeast Asia and Singapore. The campaign “Your Stage Now Live” featured 9 individuals from different walks of life and how they express themselves doing what they love. We did a photo shoot, video shoot and a short interview session. You can see the full campaign here.
Uniqlo global flagship store in Orchard Central officially opened on 2 September 2016! Our posters are placed in a few locations within the 3 story store and the video clips occasionally appear on the 286 digital screens around the store!
Pierrot pouch spotted in Uniqlo!
There are also 2 giant billboards around Somerset Mrt Station. I thought the line they had selected for my picture was very appropriate ‘What is life without dreams?’.
Here’s the interview!
Last but not least, I would like to share some behind the scenes pictures shot at the charming Thow Kwang Pottery in Singapore as it was a really memorable experience for me. It was amazing working with professionals from both Singapore and Japan. Special thanks to Kinetic Singapore and Uniqlo SG for this opportunity!
We are having a Polkaros Kamifusen workshop at Isetan Scotts in Singapore on the 23 April & 1 May 2016 as part of their Japan Fair.
Kamifusen, also known as paper balloon, is a traditional handmade toy from Japan. In this 1 hour workshop, you will get to design and decorate your very own Kamifusen.
We will also be launching our new Polkaros Kamifusen DIY kit! Special thanks to the one and only Hiki from Uguisu for being such a great advisor and supplier of the materials. We can’t wait to share the kit with you!
Our first solo exhibition in Singapore located at K+ Curatorial Space in Scotts Square ends today! Very thankful for the opportunity to share our works in such an lovely space. We launched new items such as our giant pouffes, bag accessories and riso prints. We also did a series of collaboration prints with The Letter J supply and cute pompoms with Green Laundry. A huge thank you to those who came to our opening party, attended our workshops and visited the exhibition! It means a lot to us! Special thanks to Kinetic and K+ team for all their hard work and support! For our dear friends outside of Singapore, here are some pictures of the exhibition. Hope that our works could travel to meet you some day!
Kinetic team helping with the set up. Can’t thank them enough!!
The end date was meant to be in January but thanks to the extension, many of my friends and family who lived overseas were able to catch it!

One of the exciting challenges for this exhibition was creating our giant pots!
The amazing feeling when you find the perfect plant for your pot.
