Wishing everyone a very safe Christmas & a Happy New Year.

WELCOME ...
to a relaxed creative space offering Card Making & Paper Craft workshops with more ART.

MISSION STATEMENT
To encourage and inspire your hidden 'creativist'.
WORKSHOP vs CLASS?
A 'class' is mostly about the teacher imparting information to a group of seated individuals, but a workshop is about YOU...offering you an opportunity to move about an atelier (studio), experiencing and using different tools and products, learning techniques with step-by-step guidance, exploring your creativity and most importantly, a shared enjoyment in a relaxed environment.
WHY MAKE A CARD?
The simple joy of creating something by hand and the positive energy infused into each handmade card, makes it a unique and personal gift, and a joy to receive.
WHERE?
Workshops are held at a private residence located at 21 Greendale Place,  Bracken Ridge QLD (North Brisbane) Only those with a confirmed booking may attend. For more information please get in touch.
WHAT TO BRING?
If it's your first time at a  workshop you don't have to bring anything as Alannah provides a basic kit for you to borrow on the day. Specific tools or materials used in workshops are listed when advertised. Please BYO if you have them if you don't wish to share in-house tools. Adhesives are not included in a workshop materials bundle so you'll need to bring your own or buy some from the 'shop' on the day.
CALENDAR
Please refresh the calendar regularly and remember to reserve your workshop spot by booking ahead.
BOOKINGS
Material bundles for each workshop are prepared for those with a
confirmed booking. While there is no cancellation fee, a courtesy email or text is appreciated if you've RSVP'd your interest or booked a spot but cannot attend on the day.
