This October, LET'S LEARN ABOUT...making ceramics!
Not all ceramic pieces are created equally. This ancient art form dates back thousands of years ago. Thanks to potters of the past and evolving technology, ceramic wares are now accessible to everyone. Allow us to take you through the process and perhaps you will develop a renewed appreciation for the bowls, cups, and plates in your kitchen cabinets!
Watch an animated video to learn how ceramics are made.
Test your new-found knowledge on ceramics after you have watched the video.
Check out our new Ceramics Gallery located on Level 3 of the museum with your family or friends. Snap a picture together at our Demystifying Ceramics installation and tag us @ACM_SG #LearningatACM for a chance to get your photograph featured.
You can also visit our Ceramics Gallery virtually here.
