Here's what you can look forward to.
Activities and Workshops
Getting to know local flora through a fun workshop
Have a special occasion coming up with your special someone?
Come put together a vase of flowers in an introductory flower arrangement on the table class for your significant others or try out this activity together with Make a Leafing.

At the same time, get to know blossoms cultivated in Singapore and Southeast Asia which will be used in the flower arrangement on the table.
Time: 11am - 12pm
DIY festive tea candle holder
Need a new tableside decor this festive season, but can't find the right one off the shelf?
Come make your own with Brambe using eco-friendly and up-cycled materials, such as used coffee ground sand and plastic waste.
However, if you prefer to leave the arts and crafts to the professionals, you can also browse Brambe's collection of sustainable coasters, trinkets, trays and glasses to see if there's something you like.
Admission: S$30 per item
