Description

Join artist Emily Besser for a morning spent cutting, playing and arranging at this introduction to making analog collages. It's creative, it's subversive, it's therapeutic and above all fun!

We are surrounded by printed media: beautiful images that we can find everywhere from our letter boxes to magazines. In this very hands-on workshop, Emily will show you how to appropriate all these pictures and use colour, texture and image placement to create your own piece of self-expression. 

Depending on your speed you'll take home a couple of unique pieces of art.

Kin & Kind

Vendor sincce 2017

Come along to our workshops and meet-ups and learn a skill (or brush up on old ones), talk about what you love, meet new people and spend time focusing on something other than child-rearing. Our broad range of workshops and meet-ups cover everything from creative writing, gardening and crafts to career guidance and personal development. We'll make you a coffee and most importantly, childcare is offered in the same building (kids 0-6 months are welcome to join the classes).

Kin & Kind is about exciting the passion you once had but have lost in the fog of babies, kids and home, in a safe and supportive environment. We want you to leave feeling energised, with a sense of achievement that’s unrelated to the kids. 

At the very least, you're 90 minutes closer to nap time.
