In conjunction with the The Design Conference, Join Kitiya Palaskas for a colourful and vibrant workshop to create your very own felt wall hanging in her signature style. In this bright, fun-filled session Kitiya will share her felt cut and collage techniques and help you to explore and create personalised symbols and iconography that you will then incorporate into an intricate, detailed wall tapestry. Book in to this intimate class (just 10 spots available!) to receive one-on-one guidance from Kit, and spend the morning exploring colour, pattern, and texture through this unique craft-based design project.

ABOUT THE DESIGN CONFERENCE
Five years ago we started dreaming of designing an event experience, tailored to the creative industry. We envisioned world class speakers, incredible audio-visual production, interactive side-events and hands on learning opportunities. This is ultimately an event which provides a high-value experience for its audience, speakers, supporters and sponsors.
In 2011, we made our biggest step — the first. What we lacked in experience was overshadowed by our ability to deliver a unique event that people loved. The next 3 years were spent expanding the event into the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne, before returning our focus to our creative locale: Brisbane.
With four years under our belt, The Design Conference 2015 was delivered at the Brisbane Powerhouse, a world class venue in the heart of Brisbane. We were humbled by the positive feedback, which was perhaps best epitomised by Andy Wright, from ‘For The People’, who tweeted “…it was the best event I’ve ever been to…”
We cant wait for this years event. It will be a dream come true.
We love you Brisbane.
