Next date: Saturday, 29 June 2024 | 09:30 AM to 03:30 PM


COPACC & Tarndwarncoort present:

“Stitch your secrets amongst the leaves”

Come join CrossXpollinatioN 2024 Feature Artist Michelle Mischkulnig for a 2-day workshop full of colour, joy and life.
In line with the 2024 theme “SECRETS”, we invite you to stitch your secrets amongst the leaves and tell a story (or a secret) from your life in this 2-day workshop.

Immerse yourself in the creative process of creating a large gum leaf (approx. 60-70 cm long) and learn from the wonderful Michelle, who will teach you to explore different techniques, fibres and fabrics.

Michelle has an incredible ability to find joy and positivity in the colours, smells, sounds and memories of life, and with her you will learn to create “with heart, head and hand”.
