The Flowering Heart Project ‘Tree is life’ workshop Sunday, September 29, 2019 at 10:30 am – 12:30 pm Gasworks Arts Park Art & Craft Room (Corner of Richardson and Pickles Street, Albert Park 3206)
Join me in a ‘Tree is Life’ workshop that funds tree planting , supports artist’s and gives you an opportunity to create flowering hearts with clay.
The cost of the workshop is $30 which will give you a $20 flowering heart and funds the planting of 40 trees in the tropics through www.treesisters.org and their planting partners.
$10 goes to the hire of the venue and materials.
All the hearts you make go back into the project and once sold will fund more trees.
During the workshop you’ll hear all about the creation of the ‘Tree is Life’ collaborative traveling art installation by artists Deborah Punton, Tessa Wylde, Xenica Douglas, Karen Hopkins and Ursula Dutkiewicz, The Flowering Hear Project and TreeSisters and their mission.
