Things to do this weekend: Literary Arts Festival Textures, The Rescue Project, and more

Weekend fun

Text: Jean Chua


Phase 3's been introduced — and so, more and more of our favourite eateries, bars, and attractions have opened up their doors to customers. With that being said, bigger events still remain on hold. Not to fret though. This week, learn more about the Sing Lit scene at Textures: The Bottled City exhibition, refresh your wardrobe at The Rescue Project and more.

There's no better way to #supportlocal than to #supportSingLit, and you can do just that at literary arts festival: Textures. Following the theme of The Bottled City, this year's edition of Textures takes the form of an innovative mobile installation and travelling library. Expect to be wowed by the splendid show of local talent as you pore through books and take in artworks conveyed through a range of mediums including miniatures, papercut sculptures, terrariums and  eye-catching displays.

Located at The Arts House from 26 March to 28 March. Find out more here.

Found that your taste in fashion has evolved over the years, and there are now many pieces of unwanted clothing sitting around in your wardrobe? Instead of throwing them away or just letting them collect dust in your closet, why not bring them down to [email protected]? The mall has paired up with Swapaholic for The Rescue Project; an event which allows you to donate and rescue pre-owned gems on April 17 and 18. Be warned, though, that slots are limited and registration is required. You know what they say: one man's trash is another man's treasure.

Located at [email protected] from 26 March to 4 April. Register for the refresh here.

If you're looking for a fun-filled night after a gruelling work week, then Splat Paint House is the place to be this Saturday. Singapore's first and only splatter paint studio will be hosting a Boozy UV art jam, where creativity and chaos are set to collide. In short: disco-esque illumination and lighting paired with blacklight glow-in-the-dark UV paints to throw at your friends (while observing social distancing measures, of course), all while getting your alcohol fix in with Woodstock Singapore cocktails to amp up the fun.

Located at Splat Paint House at 207A Upper Thomson Road, Singapore 574346. Find out more here.

ART I Wildflower Exhibition

Indulging in fine art doesn't necessarily have to be expensive. The Wildflower exhibit, for instance, is free; an immersive art experience featuring a captivating display of paintings by Indonesian artist Patricia Thebez. The purpose behind Wildflower is to chronicle her 10-year journey with bipolar disorder, identity, as well as freedom. It's also an auditory experience, as the gorgeous viewing will be  accompanied by a specially-designed soundscape by Singaporean musicians Derrick Tay and Ouke.

Located at 80 Playfair Road, Block A, #03-07, 367998. Book a slot here.

Shopaholics, rejoice-- there's a new place in town to get your dessert fix when your legs are tired of shopping at Orchard Road. Artisan Korean bakery Korfe Bakery will be coming to the shopping street and features fresh bakes like savoury Korean garlic buns, as well as sweet Injeolmi Read Bean buns and Nutella cookie buns. And if you need a drink to supplement your pillowy soft buns packed with thick creamy filling that oozes out, you can sip on unique-flavoured Dalgona coffee drinks. Perfect for anybody whose missing Korea and the food there as they binge watch K-dramas on Netflix.
