At School of Clay Arts, we are curious about the interplay between craft, everyday culture and the creative economy. By collaborating with Singapore-based creative businesses, it allows an exchange of ideas and experiences, resulting in an affirmation of distinct local identity that is current and ever-evolving.
On the genesis of SOCA SALON:
"There is an increasing appreciation for independent designers-makers who are interested in innovative craft techniques and employing sustainable resources to create well-designed artisanal objects. The idea of organising SOCA SALON is to gather this community, who have expressed interest in our approach and work, and create a space for conversations. With this, not only would we be able to create a more intimate, authentic and enjoyable experience for all, but also provide an antidote to the brash commercialism and polish slickness of modern retail. " - School of Clay Arts
