Enter the dragon’s den and get your hands dirty with some pottery-making at Singapore’s last operating dragon’s kiln.

About this Event


Several times a year, Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle’s resting dragon is fired up to bake pottery pieces created by Singaporeans from across the island. MCF2021 invites you to a walk-through of Singapore’s last standing dragon kiln as we explore its various functions and mystical past. The festival’s itinerary includes a pottery-making workshop. What are you waiting for? It’s time to get your aprons on!

Meet the ‘dragon master’, Stella!

Hello everyone, I am Stella – third-generation owner of Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle! As the last operating dragon kiln in Singapore, the pressure to keep the kiln standing can be quite overwhelming at times but I am really fortunate to have the support of my family who have stood by me over the years. I will work hard to keep Thow Kwang alive as it is something that truly means a lot to me and my family.

Beyond it being a business, Thow Kwang is a site of fond memories for my family and friends. I remembered the pottery jungle as a very big playground ewhere my cousins and I would play the most intense hide-and-seek (you know what I mean!)! I hope to catch some of you around the kiln as my friendly trainers conduct the programme and share more about the art of pottery-marking!

More about Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle

The history of the Thow Kwang family business can be traced back to the 1960s when Mr Tan Kim Seh first purchased a dragon kiln at Jalan Bahar. Mr Tan had migrated from Shantou, a porcelain village at the eastern cost of Guangdong, China, and started selling latex cups, orchid pots and water jars in Singapore in 1965.

Today, led by third-generation owner Stella Tan, the entire family works hard to keep Singapore’s last operating dragon kiln alive. Beyond supplying crafts to cafes, restaurants and hotels, Thow Kwang offers workshops and participates in various art markets and exhibitions. For their contributions to the cultural landscape, they were awarded The Stewards of Singapore’s Intangible Cultural Heritage Award in 2020.
