Design Tinkers
Landing Photo


DesignTinkers recognize the child's unique ways of seeing the world. We want them to be inquisitive of what works and what does not in their environment and to instill critical thinking at an early age. By exposing children to design concepts, principles and aesthetics, we introduce the design process as a methodology to problem solve and encourage our young ones to be creative in finding solutions.

Holiday Programmes

DesignTinkers provide fun and nurturing camps and workshops across various disciplines in Art, Design & Architecture. Our programmes are designed to pique curiosity, prompt inquiries, challenge norms and to test ideas to get to unique outcomes through a design process.

Who We Are

An educator, an architect, a data analyst, experimental parents with varied interests in art, culture, language and design. We value diversity, innovation, preservation and sustainability.

Tessa Ng

Tessa received her BA in Architecture degree from RMIT University and is a registered Architect (ARBV) with professional practice experience across Australia and Singapore. In 2010, Tessa embarked on her Architectural teaching journey and have since developed a passion and keen interest to work with teens and children. 


Tessa is a mother of a 9 year old girl and during her daughter’s early formative years of learning, Tessa was actively exploring fun, creative and alternative methods to teach, share and engage her; focussing largely on hands-on creative problem-solving activities in art, design and technology. Tessa and her family have relocated back to Singapore for work after living in London, UK since 2016. Tessa has collaborated with London based Creative Learning Experience and developed a Design + Architecture after-school club program. She also co-designed a public event for Open House Families organised by Open City London, UK. 


Extending her knowledge and experience, Tessa co-founded DesignTinkers to provide a fun and nurturing space for the young; to promote creativity and critical thinking through exploring design ideas and solutions via hands-on making and creating.

Esther Wang

Esther started out in the corporate world as a market and consumer insight analyst for most part of her career and she had a short stint with the National Arts Council. Esther started a family and has a young child in elementary school, and she has since been actively engaged in activities that involve children’s development. In her free time, she picked up a foreign language and speaks it fluently.


Esther values very much the benefits of art education for children and aspires to provide an avenue for children to express their creativity in thinking, imagining and exploring.  She believes that a child’s eagerness to design, make art and showcase their creations reinforces a child’s sense of achievement at an early age which builds great self-esteem in kids to take pride in their work.


Esther constantly scours for fun programs to help grow a child’s artistic confidence and this steadfastly led to co-founding DesignTinkers; to expand the vision of unlocking each child’s innate creativity through exploratory play.
