      Heritage Tile Tidy: Saturday 21 September 2019

      Heritage Tiles of Singapore Need Your Help!  Join a project about decorative vintage tiles from countries including Belgium, England and Japan!  Participating in my 'Heritage Tile Tidy' sessions is your valued contribution to my upcoming book, Singapore Heritage Tiles: A Decorative Legacy of Love. Volunteers who join me will receive a copy of my upcoming book of over 200 ornamental tiles selected for their style, type, and origin.  In order to professionally record these ceramic beauties, I have engaged an architectural photographer. Your help in cleaning will give these vintage tiles the spotlight they deserve.  As an Australian of local Hokkien and Peranakan descent, I am keen to shine a spotlight on Singapore's stunning 'gems' and demonstrate their design, historical, cultural value for future generations.  Please add me to your contacts: info (at) jenniferlimart.com and look out for your Welcome email!  If you can't make it on the day, please message me straight away!  Not enough time? Sign up for my regular Heritage Tile Update instead to enjoy exclusive insights at home.  Participant Requirements Please do not register unless you agree to be photographed or filmed by Jennifer Lim Art Pte Ltd, and for Jennifer Lim Art Pte Ltd to use such images for marketing and publication purposes (digitally and in print). You must have a reasonable fitness level to attend as we will be walking up hills and working in the outdoor heat. Otherwise, please join one of my upcoming Decorative Tiles Tour: Bukit Brown Cemetery   We usually use Whatsapp to communicate with the group.  Time: 7.30am - 10.30am It's an early start to avoid the heat! Feel free to leave at any time though. I'll send a Whatsapp message in the evening before and on the morning of the event after I've confirmed weather conditions are suitable.  Venue & Directions: Bukit Brown Cemetery, 36C Lor Halwa, Singapore 298637 Location: Meeting Point B: Platform at hill 1, via block 1, 3 & 4 entrance road. The best way is to enter from Kheam Hock Road. See here for photographs & details Directions: PLEASE carefully look up directions in advance. Our meeting place is not a particularly easy one.  What to Wear Long sleeves, long pants and long socks to keep mosquitoes and ants at bay. The cemetery's terrain is basically that of a tropical jungle.  A hat  Consider a spare t-shirt to wear afterward. I usually wear a Uniqlo singlet underneath so I can remove my sweaty t-shirt and put on a new one on the spot. What to Bring An expectation that your sweaty, dirty and unelegant work will reward you with immense satisfaction! A small towel to wipe your sweat Drinking water (bring some extra to help wash tiles!), snacks Any hand-held gardening tools like trowels, clippers and gardening gloves Any large blue Ikea plastic bags! We use them to carry stuff and to kneel on sometimes. If you have one of those tiny folding stools for sitting on, please bring!   Heavy-duty bug spray and sunscreen (I'll have some DEET bug spray to share) An umbrella and plastic bag to keep your phone and wallet dry in case it rains Wear good grip sneakers with long socks, or better still, hiking shoes Please Note By joining this tour, you are agreeing to my excursion policy.
