Being in Touch - A Transformative Art Workshop with Miranda Munro

In 2021 the earth needs us to care for her more than ever. But it's hard to get our heads around the most pressing problem (there are so many) and how we can help her even on a small scale. At times it really feels overwhelming.

This workshop is designed to offer some clarity around our purpose and how that fits with who we are.  Being in Touch with the earth and with ourselves are really one and the same thing.

So please join us for this special workshop. Mixed media materials including paints, pens, stamps, and collage papers will be available, plus some new techniques to try. You can also bring along your own materials if you wish. No art experience is necessary, just an urge to experiment!

WHEN: Saturday 13 March 1-4.30pm
WHERE: Wellington Art Club 27 Chelsea St Miramar

To book a place please contact Miranda Munro 0211169107 or email mirandabluehousestudio@gmail.com
