We have developed a 6-week workshops series that intends to help foster creativity during this devastating time. Each week will feature a new artist with a different art or craft to show to our audience. You can sign up for any of the sessions using the button below.

Artist Bio: Lauren is a multidisciplinary art/ist based in Melbourne. She can usually be found starting yet another arts and crafts project—probably involving new skills and materials she’s never used before. Lauren loves trying different materials, but for the moment, she’s settled on ceramics, collaging, zines, sub-par Photoshop work, zines and (most recently) sewing. She’s also attempted knitting (not a fan), drawing (sometimes fan) and crochet (didn’t get it, but will be back). Lauren’s art is fun, colourful, busy, and can be found on her Etsy and Instagram.
