KrisFlyer Experiences has launched a new batch of online workshops for KrisFlyer members. This is the second set they’ve released this month, following the previous round of art, whiskey tasting, fashion and aromatherapy workshops.
What are the new KrisFlyer Experiences?
A total of 9 online workshops have been organized, spanning topics like clay art, aromatherapy, whiskey tasting, and fashion.
|My Animal Buddy Educational Tour|
Get up close and personal with your favourite animals at our Singapore wildlife nature park from the comfort of your home. Learn about their unique behaviours and get exclusive behind-the-scenes peek from their dedicated keepers.
|Mobile Photography Workshop||Turn the nice photos you take on your mobile phone into great ones. Learn from award winning photographer Scott Woodward as he shares tips, tricks and hacks to get the most out of your camera phone|
|Home Brewing and Coffee Beans||Take your appreciation of coffee to the next level with Mellower Coffee. Pick up basic brewing skills or learn how soil conditions and climate affect the flavour of coffee beans|
|Sake Tasting||Get acquainted with the culture, history and cultivation of sake, where a certified sake sommelier will take you through the diversity of styles and taste profiles of three premium sakes, specially sourced from some of Japan’s most renowned boutique & artisanal breweries|
Here’s the schedule and cost of each workshop:
|Workshop||Date & Duration||Cost|
|Virtual Getaway With My Animal Buddy||6-Sep|
|Mobile Photography Workshop||22-Aug|
|Tasting Specialty Coffee||29-Aug|
|Introduction To Home Brewing (Session 1, 2)||16-Aug & 30-Aug|
|Sake Tasting (Session 1, 2, 3, 4)||28-Aug, 12-Sep, 25-Sep, 26-Sep|
Some of these workshops will send you a kit with the materials you’ll need to participate (hence the higher cost of the sake and coffee ones). Members can redeem as many tickets as they want, but all redemptions are non-refundable.
Each class has a minimum participants requirement, and will be cancelled if this threshold is not met. Miles will be refunded for any cancelled classes.
Is it worth it?
We can debate the merits of spending 2,000 miles so your kid can attend a livestream of an animal show, or 8,000 miles for three sample-sized bottles of sake, but at the end of the day only you can answer that question.
If you find the subject matter interesting and have the miles to spend, why not? It’s one of the few things you can do with your KrisFlyer miles right now.
Although these online workshops are a far cry from an all expenses paid trip to the BRIT Awards, it’s about all that can be done at the moment, so long as the prohibition on large scale gatherings remains in place.
I’m curious to hear from anyone who attended one of the past workshops- was it well run, did you feel it was worth it?
