5 things to do this weekend: 24—26 June
ART | Nyonya Needlework: Embroidery and Beadwork in the Peranakan World
Five years of planning has come to fruition, with this exhibition that showcases the Peranakan art of embroidery and beadwork. The blend of Chinese and Malay culture and techniques will leave you awestruck over the rich heritage of nyonyas and babas. As you make your way around the exhibition, keep your eyes peeled for a pair of slippers with the message 'Good Luck' woven in.
Opens 24 June, 10am at the Peranakan Museum. For more information, click here.
MUSIC | Baybeats 2016
With the likes of Bear Culture, Disco Hue and Cashew Chemists in the lineup, it's hard to be anything but excited for Baybeats. Running the gamut of folk, pop, metal, electro and everything in between, be witness to international and local acts. And if you're a budding musician, step out and take the stage with the Baybeats Open Stage.
