Craft Up A Storm: Textiles and Ceramics in Action

Gallery Lane Cove + Creative Studios will be the site of some intense crafty action with textiles and ceramics workshops led by Emma Peters, Rhonda Pryor, Vivien Haley, Kara Pryor and Sol Contardo. In addition, Elemental, an exhibition of jewellery and sculpture by Dianne Craig will be on show. Learn textile handprinting techniques, slow stitching, patch a tote bag, linen table runners, make cloth brooches and channel a fantastical animal through ceramics.  A printmaking get-together will be announced in September.
