Writing Workshop

WRITING WORKSHOP

with Michelle Hallett

Monday  22nd August 10.45am – 1.45pm
Monday  29th August 10.45am – 1.45pm
Monday  5th September 10.45am – 1.45pm

Peninsula Women’s Health Centre,
McMasters Road, Woy Woy

This workshop is based around the idea that a short story is often a conflict between two characters from which one of them, at least, learns something.

The first two weeks will be spent talking, writing and developing two characters and a conflict between them. Participants will then have a week to write a story for discussion in the final classes. Participants can use this to prepare a story or as a writing exercise.

RAG BAG WORKSHOP

with Nicole de Mestre

DATES: 10 September, 2022

Australia is the second highest consumer of textiles per person in the world. Each Australian consumes an average of 27 kilograms of new clothing per year and disposes an average 23 kilograms of clothing to landfill each year, or 93 per cent of the textile waste we generate. These statistics have inspired this workshop.

Using minimal equipment, participants will learn to select, prepare and crochet unwanted fabric and yarns into bags or baskets. Scissors, fabric, yarn and a large crochet hook required-some of which will be provided. Some basic crochet knowledge is useful, but not essential.

Each participant will need one or two full shopping bags of light weight fabrics and clothing to shred, so it might be a good idea to start collecting now!

BAG SEWING WORKSHOP

with Jutta Stone in Kincumber

Wednesday and/or Fridays
(Approx 2 x 2hrs sessions to complete a bag)

Have you ever seen something and thought “I should be able to make that!” Is sewing something you would like to aspire to? Well, ladies, how about making a tote bag?

I am a self taught sewer and aspire to making quilts one day, but for now, I am making bags for a registered charity called Escabags which provides emergency provisions for those who have escaped domestic violence.

Believe me, these bags are easy to make and, who knows, perhaps you might gain a love of sewing?

I will be holding this workshop in my own home. Little or no experience necessary or expected. Nothing required of you except your enthusiasm and a donation of $5.00 towards the cost of materials etc. which will be donated to Escabags.

You will be able to take your bag home with you, or if not, you can also donate it.

N.B. Tea/coffee & snacks will be provided.
