We ♥ Katong Sketchwalk for Epigram Books' "Our Neighbourhoods"


Epigram Books is ready to work on the next title of the Our Neighbourhoods series, and this time we're going to Katong!

Despite the dominance of private residences, it has developed a very unique sense of community, much like the neighbourhoods that we've sketched.

START POINT:
09:30 am 
The Betel Box

END POINT:
12:30 pm 
The Betel Box

Aditi from Epigram Books has prepared a map (30 copies) and a listing of locations of note (40 copies). Do print your own or download them to your portable device if you prefer.

2: Map of Katong: http://tinyurl.com/katongmap
*being such a huge area, the map is a little hard to read

While the focus will be on the highlighted places, you are free to sketch whatever you want. Do chat to residents, business operators and people you meet to get a better feel of the location and find out what they find important and beautiful in the area.
