orders until 10pm.

transformed into a mini-hall for the first full day of CRAFT, including an
all-day outdoor (weather permitting) picnic. Visitors will be able to try some
of the new A for Arbite menu items (not to mention tea from Gryphon Tea Company) and check out the things on display, from a
corner decorated by design and textiles duo Fictive Fingers, to sculpting and
model making by the multi-talented David "BlueWolfe" Liew, to sprawling interactive artwork by American
artist Lindsey Bailey, A.K.A Cake Crush.
Wordforward will be running a workshop titled The Craft of Poetry, from 10am to 12pm. This workshop focuses on considering what makes a poem tick and how to write poems more powerfully.

Then, from 6.30 pm, join Marc Nair, Nabilah Husna and Jasmine Cooray, three experienced performance poets who will be performing original work in The Language Hospital, a spoken word showcase.
The Drinking Partners will be onsite to share their knowledge of Belgium’s finest beer, with a wide selection of bottled beer as well as some very special beers on tap, from brewers such as Palm, Lindemans, and Steenbrugge Abbey.
SUNDAY 29/9 (11am - 9pm):

At this workshop, co-presented by A for Arbite and The Drinking Partners, attendees will have the chance to appreciate and learn more about food and beer pairing, including the ways to recognise and describe the bouquet, palate and mouthfeel of beers, and how different beers compliment, contrast or cut with different dishes. There will, of course, be food and beer to drink so this one is for ages 18+!
