The only guilt you'll get at The Potters' Guilt is for making far too many beautiful ceramics. And it doesn't help that the teachers there are incredibly nice, patient and helpful. Located on top of Pearl's Hill Terrace, the studio beckons you to its wood-toned and minimalistic space, where you can begin your pottery journey with a pottery-on-the-wheel experience ($58) – or jump right into an eight-week Basic Potters' Wheel course ($520). Perfect for eager novices, the curriculum includes lessons in centering, throwing, trimming and glazing, yielding six to 10 fired pieces to bring home.
The imposing building at 195 Pearl's Hill Terrace used to be the upper barracks of a police station. What was once the centre of surveillance and control (over the crime-ridden alleys of Chinatown), is now a hub of freedom and creativity. There's something poetic about that.
In sanitised and 'straight' Singapore, places like 195 Pearl's Hill Terrace are true gems, and one can easily spend a whole day there exploring the many unique creative workshops and studios, or even the occasional fair. This week, we urge you to clear some time in your calendar to check out something off our list of the best things to do in Pearl's Hill.
