For a new MediaCorp series on Channel 5 titled Do It Yourself!, Hans Tan was invited to share DIY design ideas to the television audience over 2 episodes. Perforated Polypropylene DIY was created for this occasion, subjecting the ubiquitous plastic chair commonly found in coffeeshops, funerals and outdoor events to a torrent of 16mm holes. With just (lots of intense) human labour and an electric drill, one can transform a S$15 plastic chair into a surprising piece of furniture which can still hold the weight of a person if the holes are positioned strategically. Please try this at home, at your own risk.
Have you ever wondered how much money you can save by making something you need out of recycled materials, and refurbishing or repurposing an item? Follow our self-proclaimed designers, Matthew Chong and Amanda Chong (played by Benjamin and Naralle Kheng from Singapore indie band The Sam Willows), and not-so-popular artiste, Michelle Leong (played by Aileen Tan), through a series of hilarious skits and learn some crafty and ingenious projects from DIY gurus in Do It Yourself!

The series runs every Tuesday 9:00 to 9:30pm, from 15 July to 07 October 2014.
