- Am I Addicted
Have you watched the iconic 1990 Romantic American movie, Ghost? If you have then you know where we’re going with this one. Yes, we’re talking about pottery making!

This workshop isn’t exuberantly priced either when compared to the other pottery making workshops in Singapore. This cafe/pottery workspace also offers studio rentals for company team building sessions.
Additionally, experienced pottery makers can create their unique ceramics using the studio’s tools and space for only $20/2H!
Am I Addicted is a great way for beginners to try out pottery making with guidance from instructors.
This studio cafe offers 5 different types of clay for you to choose from and over 125 types of glazes! We think this would be a fulfilling experience for you to try and dorn your home space with an original ceramic ware created and designed by you.
After you’re done with getting your hands dirty (and have probably worked up an appetite) head to their Korean cafe to enjoy some vegan bibimbap and kimchi.

Next up we have Sugarose Cafe. It’s said that this newly opened floral themed cafe with floral jamming is the first of its kind in Singapore.
The cafe is exuberantly decorated with flowers on the walls AND ceiling! This spot is especially convenient as it's easily accessible through a train ride with its location being right outside Exit B of Jalan Besar MRT station.
You can create your own unique bouquets using their variety of fresh flowers with ribbons and wrapping papers all while being taught by an experienced florist.
We think floral jamming makes a perfect girls day out activity as well! With each purchase of a floral jamming package, you get to redeem a free drink at the cafe after you’re done.

Have you always wanted to have a green thumb? Here’s your chance to try it out and see if it’s something you might enjoy. Aspiring plant-parents can visit The Plant Story for an array of plant based workshops like urban farming and terrarium making.
Better yet, they also have other workshops that are less about planting and more about alternative ways to enrich your experiences with plants like a nature art workshop or our personal favourite, a home apothecary workshop.
