Rubber Workshop

Our Rubber Story workshop (Includes a guided tour to our mini Rubber plantation)
Description The story starts as we travel back in time, walking through a real rubber plantation and living the lives of rubber tappers in 19th Century Singapore. Rubber tapping is an art by itself. Learn the different techniques, tools and skills that are needed to obtain the highest latex yield. The story does not stop here. Due to its unique set of properties, it is used to manufacture many different products, such as tyres and gloves, that are still used today.
Think you would know everything about rubber by now? Put your knowledge to the test when you head over to the laboratory to spot the real rubber latex from the fake. If you were fooled by the fake latex, it’s time for you to fool your friends by using rubber latex to create special effects prosthetic wound. With Halloween around the corner, you can even use the fake wound as a prop to scare your friends!
