Giving Tree 2020 - 27 November - 15 December
Make Christmas wishes come true with the Giving Tree program that was first launched in 2016. Timothy Wong wanted to share the excitement and glee he felt from opening his presents on Christmas morning. Together with mum and founder of Motherswork, Sharon Wong, he started this Giving Tree initiative. Hence, shoppers can make Christmas wishes come true by choosing a wish and purchasing the item for the intended recipient.
Home Baker Sales by Marie MJ Soh, 28 - 29 November
Hair and makeup artist, and founder of 27a.co, Marie Soh will be selling her lovingly baked chocolate chip cookies at Motherswork. With a long waitlist of about four weeks – as she takes care of her two children, these are often sold out within 10 minutes. Testimonials include this from Esther Teo, “Rich, moreish and addictive, Marie’s chocolate chip cookies are hearty, crunchy-brown on the edges and crisp throughout. Home baked with love and a perfect treat for the whole family.” Gift these as a Christmas present to friends and family, or simply stockpile them to eat at home.
Christmas Workshops at Motherswork, Great World City
Urban Li'l Wreath Making Workshop - 4 - 5 and 11 - 12 December
This Christmas, let your little ones learn how to make festive wreaths, which they can personalise with embellishments and custom plaques. Great for children five years and above, these workshops will be held at Motherswork’s Great World City store. Younger children five and above can make their own Rustic Christmas Wreath ($65) in an hour-long session from 12-1pm and 2-3pm by Urban Li’l, and embellish it with touches like red and gold berries and mistletoes, and their own customised Christmas plaques. These plaques may include custom family names for participants who registered one week prior to the event, or standard festive greetings.
Older children above 10 can take this a step further and create their own classic Pampas Christmas Wreath ($70), woven out of dried pampas grass. Likewise, they can also add on any embellishments, as well as the custom family plaque. Both workshops are limited to eight children per session.
