Design a Brooch and Fridge Magnet

Brooches are back, and celebrities are wearing them. Now you can wear one from an exclusive designer: namely, you. Plus your fridge magnets needn’t advertise companies no longer in business.

Workshop facilitator Nancy D Lane will show you how she creates her designs, then encourage you to make a brooch and a magnet that are uniquely ‘you’.

Bring some of your own found objects, or select from the wide range of materials Nancy has collected. Wear old clothes, as the glue is messy.

Thursday 5 May, 10am-11.30am | $30 | Tickets
