Christmas Creativity Classes – two wonderful venues!

I don’t know why, but for some reason every year, Christmas tends to sneak up on me….


It could be the enthusiastic flutter into spring or the crazy-buzz of end of school year, but I seem to feel it comes racing at me with ever-increasing speed each year.

And I long to choose to be mindful and put the brakes on to remember gratitude.

…For my family and our peaceful home.

…For my children’s future looking bright when so many don’t have that luxury.

In our home, we often gather around creativity in order to slow.

Making things with busy and intentional hands, allows room for hearts to be full of love + gratitude. A gift thoughtfully made gives so much more than just the object.

If you are like me and want to make the choice to slow and be mindful, can I invite you to join us at our Creativity Workshops – two locations this year!

Riverbend Books and Cafe have been such an incredible supporter of local community and mindfulness – we just adore running classes in this beautiful store!

A new inner-west venue for WEAVE+WONDER is the gorgeous gift + design store OneGirlStudio in Graceville. We have recently completed term time Architecture + Design classes for children and students are eagerly awaiting more Christmas-creativity!

Again this year, we are offering classes over two weeks to accommodate private and state school finish times – please choose a class that suits you! These are Christmas-time favourites and even if you have joined us for a similar class in years gone by, these treasures make wonderful gifts and we will include new colours + materials.

We can’t wait to share creative time with your children this Christmas and help them to craft handmade gifts of love to treasure!

holiday workshops :: bookish draw + collage

Oh, Immerse yourselves in these fantastical ‘bookish’ collages friends!

Aren’t they incredible? And so diverse in their interpretation, showcasing how book pages can be used in myriad different ways to create imaginative art.

Some artists have chosen to use pages from vintage books as background for their silhouette works, some have used the pages as collage medium. While others have made a statement using typography, more again can be found creating lighthearted works using animals.

I am looking forward to our ‘bookish’ draw and collage class these holidays where we will provide opportunity to create our own book-inspired masterpiece. We will share some great artwork and poetry from books and then choose to either use our book pages as background to our drawn work or collage with the pages themselves, torn and cut.

Book pages find a new lease on life through artwork, creating great texture, comical relief or making a statement through the words on pages chosen to be used.

Don’t miss out on this imaginative class, our holiday workshops are booking up fast. Follow this link for further information and to BOOK NOW for this and our watercolour and weaving workshops also!
