Workshops and classes
Rejuvenate your bling with local artist Melissa Larsen
Wondering what to do with your old, preloved, sentimental or broken jewellery? Those pieces sitting in the back of the drawer that you never wear but can’t bear to throw out? This one day workshop will unleash your creative side as you are guided by artist and teacher Melissa Larsen to rejuvenate your Bling. You bring the ‘jewels’- your preloved and no longer worn or cherished jewellery and Melissa will provide tools, accessories and creative approaches needed to help you create your new one off works. Share laughs, trinkets and creative encouragement. You’ll feel a great sense of achievement and add new additions (with special memories) to your wardrobe! This workshop is tried, tested and great fun. Participants are encouraged to share their bits and bobs…one man’s trash is another man’s treasure! Please note…this is not a beading workshop. We work with leather, chain, rope… anything out of the box goes!
10am - 3pm Saturday 8 December, OR 10am - 3pm Sunday 9 December

Visual Thinking Practice Sessions
What’s going on in this picture?.. There are no wrong answers when it comes to Visual Thinking Strategies delivery. VTS is about looking at art, considering what we see, then putting what we see into words. It’s not an art history lesson, it’s a method of teaching that empowers the learner, strengthening oral communication, visual literacy and creative and analytical skills. Whether you’re an experienced educator, or just someone with a love of art, language and social interaction, our VTS practise sessions are for you! You can begin by simply participating as an audience member, and over time, you might like to join the rest of us as we practise delivering VTS sessions ourselves. It’s challenging, empowering and extremely enjoyable. Come along and try it, it’s free - but let us know you’re coming so we have a chair for you.
Regular practise delivery sessions are held at 3:30pm (for a 3:45pm start) to 5pm on the LAST Thursday every month, Artspace Mackay, Civic Precinct, Gordon St.
