Wildflower Wall Hanging Workshop with Ellie Hannon


In this workshop, participants will engage with the playfulness and therapeutic nature of clay. Throughout history, clay has been used to create both practical and decorative objects, a material that has carried stories and memories in the forms of vessels and artefacts that have been passed down through the generations. Using a variety of hand building techniques that Ellie uses when playing with clay, participants will learn how to create a symbolic artefact, drawing on inspiration from the shapes and forms found in Australian wildflowers.

Join former MAKE IT MADE IT Conference Speaker Ellie Hannon for this incredible hand on workshop on Friday 12 July.

Students: $35
General: $50

Creative Drawing Workshop with Rosie Turner


Newcastle artist Rosie Turner believes that drawing is for everyone!

You don't need any prior experience for this workshop - from the complete novice or the artist who just wants to loosen up - this workshop will make you rethink what a "good" drawing looks like.

During this workshop you will be guided through experimental drawing exercises, letting go of the "right way" to draw, learn about expressive art principles and walk away with your very own masterpiece. On the day you will create your own artwork using an eclectic mix of beautiful fresh flowers and objects as your subject.

Rosie will guide you though all materials and techniques and encourage you to develop your own creative drawing style.

+  1.5 hrs of creative (judgement free) fun
+ Drawing equipment to use during the workshop
+ An inspiring warehouse studio setting including fresh flowers
+ Artistic mentoring and step-by-step guidance
+ Several of your own unique artworks to take home
+ A free, signed risograph print by Rosie Turner
