Conceived and co-organised with ceramic artist Michelle Lim, Awaken the Dragon is a project to raise awareness of the last 2 dragon kilns in Singapore through conducting clay workshops where 3,000 participants make their own artwork, a firing festival when the dragon kiln is fired with all the artworks inside, and an exhibition showcasing all the fired artworks.
In the first festival, we worked with Guan Huat Dragon Kiln (Jalan Bahar Clay Studios). The workshops took place from Aug-Dec 2012, the firing festival in Jan 2013 and the exhibition in Mar 2013.
In the second festival, we worked with Thow Kwang Dragon Kiln. The workshops took place from Mar-Oct 2014, the firing festival and a National Ceramic Forum in Nov 2014, and the exhibition in Apr 2015.
