Peranakan Museum presents Nyonya Needlework: Embroidery and Beadwork in the Peranakan World.

Celebrate one of the most vibrant cultures in Singapore at the Peranakan Museum from now till March next year. The exhibition will showcase the traditional Peranakan art of embroidery and beadwork, giving visitors an in-depth look into the intricate craft of gold threads and silk.

The show is divided into five sections, ranging from auspicious emblems and symbols, creative hands: makers and methods, to the diverse styles of Indonesia, Malacca, Singapore and Penang. One of the key highlights is the beaded wedding valence dating back to 1848 in Indonesia, which shows early influence and adaptation from Chinese embroidery.

Those wanting a more immersive experience can look forward to Straits Family Sunday: All Sewed Up where you can make your very own Peranakan accessory or go for Peranakan Beadwork with Raymond Wong to take your first step into this intricate craft (S$50/session).
