Landscape Drawing with Charcoal:

The workshop fee includes all the materials you need. Please bring an apron with you.
Collage your Story:
In this fun, exploratory workshop we will be introduced to collage and how we can use this medium to explore our own culture, and stories to create personal art.
Please bring images that are personal to you and your personal heritage, family story or culture. These can include photos, items of interest to you, ribbons, or stamps or ticket stubs or greeting cards, a letter or a recipe book, magazines, or newspaper articles.?? These can be copied at the centre if you don't want to use the originals.?
Learn to Make a Japanese Knot Bag:
These delightful bags can be made in any size either by hand or with a sewing machine. They are small open tote bags but, with a twist. They are useful for knitting, crochet, sewing projects and to carry lunch to work!
Please bring a basic sewing kit with you. You will need to bring a basic sewing kit, 2 x half metres of cotton fabric, and matching thread. You can also bring your machine if you wish to use one. If you choose to use your machine you will be able make the bag very much more quickly and you may be able to make more than one (in which case bring additional fabric)!
