Faizal (co-founder of Sri Setia Pulau Singa) was first introduced to Kelantanese wayang kulit when he visited Kelantan to repair and buy percussion instruments for dikir barat. He got interested and brought a few friends over to Kelantan to learn from the masters there! As a Malay musician, he feels a strong responsibility to keep this practice alive especially since they have inherited the art form from the masters in Kelantan.


Join us in this Kelantanese style puppet shadow or wayang kulit making workshop where you get to create your own wayang kulit using tools and material that are used by the craftsmen themselves! 


This project is supported by National Arts Council and is part of Typecraft series where a range of decorative typefaces was developed in the context of the rich crafts and traditional arts of Singapore heritage through public engagement initiatives.
