Creating art is a therapeutic way to destress after a hectic day at work or school – or a bad year. So it's very apt that social art jamming has been on the rise worldwide, with more studios popping up all over Singapore. After all, you can make new like-minded acquaintances while still being responsible and keeping a safe distance.

Thinking of a fun, social and creative way to spend your weekend? Art jamming is a great family bonding activity, or a second date idea that gives you the chance to show off your top-notch art and craft skills. These studios come equipped with an arsenal of art tools and blank canvases, so all you have to do is turn up and let your creative juices flow.

Free up some four hours to attend Tuft Club's rug-making workshop ($195). At Singapore's first tufting studio, you get to play with yarn to create fluffy works of art. As part of the session, you'll be using a tufting gun to weave cotton or wool threads through a cut of monk's cloth. Tuft Club even provides a projector to screen your chosen design onto the cloth as a guide. Weave pictures of your pet, do an abstract design, create bold colour fields – anything goes when you have 25 colours of yarn to choose from (up to 50 with a top-up). Tuft Club also hosts a tuft mirror workshop ($195), where you create fluffy mirror frames with much the same technique.

Got no idea where to start when it comes to painting? Let physics do the work at Motion Art Space. This fairly new studio on Arab Street uses pendulum swings and rotating tables to help you achieve stunning and mathematically precise pieces of abstract art – a fairly new concept in Singapore but something that's created a buzz on Tik Tok. All you have to do is pick your tool and fill them up with paint colours of your choice: bottles with thin nozzles will produce fine, delicate lines while wooden boxes will spill a bold splash of colour onto your canvas. You can use various brushes to further jazz up your piece, and even hairdryers to blow paint puddles into interesting wave designs.

Sited at the city’s coolest art district, amongst hipster cafes and vintage shops, Liberty Art Jam by Artify Studio is one to visit when you’re itching to unleash your inner Picasso. But get this: it’s also Singapore’s first art studio to run The Honour System, where you either honour the giving guide of $35 for two hours or you go for a pay-what-you-wish option. Think of it as painting for a good cause too – payments are made post-painting.

While Orchard Road pulses with life, find tranquillity at Arteastiq, a boutique tea house that offers respite from the hustle and bustle below. The name reflects how the concept combines both a premium tea lounge with an art jam studio, encouraging people to gather for a therapeutic experience. After spending the day painting, refuel with your pick from the food menu. You can find classic favourites like squid ink spaghetti ($16) and salmon wellington ($27) or Asian delights like sambal sea bass & dry laksa ($25) or pan-roasted chicken thigh ($22).
