TBA         1pm-3:30/4pm

Cost including all materials $45

Limited to 4 places

Prayer flags are a physical totem for producing a positive or hopeful thought. Using traditional Indian carved wood blocks, you will design and stamp x5 panels of material (red, yellow, green, blue & purple) with fabric printing ink. Be inspired by the different carved shapes or be influenced by the flag colours, or simply be open to the intuitive creative flow. 

This workshop is to provide the opportunity to print the flags, which can be finished into a bunting at home.

 

These flags have been inspired by the recent earthquakes in Nepal, and the urge to give hope back to others. Included in the workshop cost is a $10 donation per artist, which will be given to Hands with Hands, an organisation in Nepal that builds homes & assists education for homeless and orphaned children, whilst also involving women who are also in need (either widowed or abandoned). By making your prayer flags these children and women will also be given help and hope for their future.

Words to Poetry Art Smash
        A novel dissected & reinvented
 

TBC

Cost including materials -

Age: 15+

6 places

 

This is a fun exercise to stimulate the mind and reinvent how we place words together to tell a story. Story-telling in its purest form is an art. It can be a freeing way to drop all preconceived ideas of how a story is normally told and allow only the random words before you- talk, creating organic sentences. As the pieces fall into place, natural tangents guide how your artwork develops, or if it ends. This snippet of prose when finished will be perfect to frame, hang or give as a gift.

~words & phrases will be cut from old well-loved books, rearranged and adhered to a backing. Whilst the focus is predominantly on the words, other embellishments are optional. You determine how long or brief it may be.

(No artistic skills are required- a love of words is essential)

With light fingers, the two hours will zip by, as often it is that prep time takes longer than the actual assemlage. You will take home one of these unusual wreaths that will last long past the feastive season.

Plant material will depend upon availability at the date of workshop. Wreath size depends on flora used, usually no larger than 40cm.
