Kicking off the programme with dialogues about The Local Tree Project, we illuminate the landscape of our woodworking industry. Engage in conversations with us as we share on the stories of our local trees and our efforts in utilising local resources and reducing wastage. You will also be able to partake in creating your very own pair of wooden chopsticks and pencils through our workshop experience! Utilising offcuts—materials that are leftover—we wish to share how they could be turned into usable products, rather than discarding them.

This programme is open to everyone. No experience is required for participants to take part in our workshops.

Roger&Sons

Roger&Sons is a team of ethical makers and mavericks who craft fine furniture and thoughtful objects. Our work is driven by inquiry, and spans disciplines: furniture, industrial, and product design, as well as woodworking.

Our team also spearheads The Local Tree Project—an initiative started in 2019 that salvages trees that have been felled for urban development. It rehabilitates these abandoned logs by turning them into durable, future-proof objects and furniture.

An International Flower, For An International City

The orchid is commonly known by Singaporeans as our national flower - Vanda Miss Joaquim. While many countries have national flowers too, the orchid is more than a national flower in Singapore’s case. It is also a tool used in Singapore’s diplomatic relations. This essay explores this little-known aspect of our natural heritage.

Plasticity

Artist and photographer Ernest Goh, as part of his residency with Exactly Foundation, created a photography series which zooms into the epic scale of plastic pollution via extreme close-up images of microplastic fragments, some just 2mm in size.
