It was a showcase of creative flair on the evening of September 10, as 25 guests turned up at the Chijmes Lawn for the Herend Porcelain Artist Class. For the next three hours, as delicious wine and conversation flowed freely, the party played with colours and textures as they were taught the finer points of painting. Mingling and merrymaking aside, everyone also stopped to admire the special display of a Merlion, which was adorned with vibrant hues to reflect the joyous mood of Singapore’s golden jubilee.
