Book Your October Art Workshop with Michelle

My Gold Lotus Exhibition at the Cooroy Butter Factory Arts Centre brings with it an opportunity for community arts outreach so I grabbed that with both hands and I will be teaching two workshop series. Book one or both but be quick because numbers are seriously limited (I know people say that but these sell out really fast so if you are keen please book or ask your questions and get in asap).

Details for the 2 workshop types below – click through to the website now to check them out. I will email your confirmation and a small list of requirements to have ready on the day – please print and bring your confirmation with you – buddy up and book with a friend perhaps.
