Sustaining Creativity: September School Holiday Workshops

Sustaining Creativity: September School Holiday Workshops

We're super pleased to be facilitating a creative festival all about sustainability over the month of September at the light & bright Glen Eira Council Gallery!

Drop into the Gallery during the September school holidays to engage in stacks of open-age FREE creative explorations using sustainable materials. All are welcome, with plenty of free interactive activities on offer, including collage, paper sculpture and nature drawing. Fabulous fun for the whole family! No bookings required. 

But if you're in Melbourne and looking for something to keep the kids fully immersed in creativity and sustainability, then check out these hands-on, project-based green design workshops for 5-9 years OR 10-14 years - these are also FREE but booking are essential as places are limited.
