Oh to share in the wonder and delight of creativity in childhood!
Where stories captivate and materials stimulate and imaginations soar!
Some of our favourite creative moments have been shared with young children, inspired to dream big and uninhibited by lack of skill or fear that ‘they can’t do it’. We are excited to ‘take a flight of fancy’ once again with pre-school children and their parents/carers and explore the wonderful world of birds!
The gorgeous gift store, Teenie and Tiny in Camp Hill, on Brisbane’s inner south will host our three week creative series – surrounded by natural and unique gifts and books for sale!
There are places remaining in both the Tuesday and Friday class commencing NEXT WEEK! We would love for you to join and share this creative experience with your child. This wonderful opportunity to read + create together with all inspiration and materials provided is a great memory-making opportunity in these all-too-fleeting early years of childhood.
Don’t miss out – our classes are kept deliberately small. See our class outline below. Book and pay online here.
THEME: All about Birds! Based on the book ‘Phoebe’s Feathers’ By Rod Clements. This series will encourage children to observe the birds in their neighbourhood, draw from their observations using our handmade journals and explore a number of creative media tailored to this theme.
WEEK 1: Focus on Clay – children will explore the clay medium after reading our story. They will have opportunity to create gorgeous clay birds with rainbow feathers together with nests and eggs for mama-bird to care for! A wonderfully tactile and imaginative introduction to clay!
WEEK 2: Focus on Paint/collage – Phoebe is a bird who loves to ‘stand out’ and make an impression! This week we will use a beautifully handcrafted wooden bird house cutout and paint/collage to create an architectural masterpiece worthy of the flamboyant Phoebe!
WEEK 3: Focus on beginning stitching – In our final class we will learn beginning stitching techniques. Children will create a beautifully colourful nest for our silhouette bird on hessian using colourful wool and blunt needle! They will then cut out felt eggs to tuck into her nest! This piece creates a beautiful wall hanging!
‘I wanted to take the time to thank you for such an enjoyable series. My daughter has loved the stories chosen and getting her hands in amongst all the beautiful materials you have supplied. You may have noticed I couldn’t resist getting my hands in amongst it too! Taking the time to stop and enjoy the process has been almost therapeutic! I’ve really enjoyed watching my daughter with her friends in this type of setting and look forward to the next block.’
