Emu Egg Painting with Aunty Suzanne

This workshop we invite Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members to take part in an emu egg painting session.

Come together to learn painting techniques and inspiration from Aunty Suzanne – and take home an egg to complete and cherish.

HOW: Tickets are free, but bookings are essential.

WHAT: All materials and tools provided.

WHAT ELSE: Lunch and drinks also provided.

PLEASE NOTE: If you book a ticket, and can not make it, please let us know with as much time as possible, so we can offer the place to others.  We do not want empty seats and unused eggs.
