My Babak's Studio

My Babak’s Studio is inspired by sisters, Fauziah Jamal and Faridah Jamal’s fond childhood memories that were truly filled with sparkling diamonds and gems!

Their late father, Haji Ahmad Jamal whom they affectionately addressed as Babak, is a Banjarese diamond trader and jeweller. Growing up, the sisters remember watching him at work and trying their hands at designing jewellery in his office located in their home at 14 Jalan Pisang, Kampong Gelam. 

Explore the studio to discover the sisters’ childhood memories and experience the work that a diamond trader and jewellery designer would do on a typical day.

Complete your experience by purchasing the 'Mini Briefcase' Activity Pack! at the Visitor Services Centre.  Each Pack contains a selection of art materials as well as a pair of disposable children sized gloves. 

Suitable for children aged 3 and above.
