This is my second doing this experience. This time I got JJ to customize a couple portrait for me as a wedding gift for my best friend. JJ spent time discussed & advised me the size & design, truly appreciate her effort for making sure I am capable of completing the artwork. Workshop was conducted at their local home, JJ's mom has also prepared her homemade chrysanthemum tea for us. It was a really great day spent with them!

I really enjoyed this experience with JJ and her mom. They were friendly and eager to show me how to make the artwork. They kept a watchful eye out and assisted when needed. At the same time, I had plenty of time and space to work at my own pace. We had lots of conversation, and they seemed genuinely curious about people. It’s great that you get to make and take home your artwork. The pieces look even more impressive in person. I now have a personalized artwork that is both modern and classic feeling at the same time. I’d recommend this to anyone wanting to try alternative art forms in a comfortable setting with locals.

It was a lovely experience with J.J and her mother. I was the only guest that day but it felt as if I was visiting my old friend's house and had a nice afternoon tea with them. I really respect what they do and was blown away by J.J's creativity and talent. I would recommend it to anyone even if they are traveling alone in Singapore.

I live in Singapore and attended this workshop with my friend who discovered it on Airbnb Experience - what a great way to spend a relaxing weekend afternoon! A big thank you to JJ and mum for so thoughtfully designing this meaningful, enjoyable and satisfying experience. As a sustainability professional, the Music Cloth movement has my full support in raising awareness about the problem of e-waste! For those visiting Singapore, this is also a great chance to experience the joys of public housing in our city (where 80% of the population lives), with a stunning (rare) view of the surrounding greenery. Tea and Pandan chiffon cake are a lovely local touch as well :)

I was intrigued by the “MusicCloth Weaving” description and signed up for it. It was truly an enjoyable experience where I tried weaving cassette tape for my self portrait art work. JJ and her mom were very patient in guiding and ensuring I weaved correctly. The refreshments provided was a lovely reward for the “hard work” too. :) I recommend this interesting activity for anyone who enjoy making things and want to do your part in upcycling!

This is our first Airbnb experience & it was awesome! JJ & mum made us feel at ease & they were friendly & patient. It was interesting to learn how you can weave old cassette tape into a piece of art work. Highly Recommended! :)
