Sandra’s talk at the BCC Brisbane Square Library on the weekend went really well and was a great start to our series of talks / demos.
14 people attended and had their minds opened to the potential of mono printing. It’s a shame you can’t see the “oohs” and ” aaahs” because there were many!
at Brisbane City Council Brisbane Square Library, Brisbane CBD
The End Room, Level 2
Sunday 2 February 10.30am to 12noon
No Bookings Required
Artist Talk and Demonstration by Sandra Pearce about the printmaking process of monoprinting, where one-of-a-kind prints are produced using a variety of methods. The focus will be on how monoprinting can be done at home with everyday objects, leaves and paint.
Sandra will show you how to make a printing surface using household products, and the easy process to create wonderful prints to use as cards, wrapping paper or framed works of art.
A fantastic creative activity that can be shared with your family, or just good fun for grown ups!

Attention anyone with school age children!
Do your kids get bored toward the end of the holidays? Do they mope around, moaning an endless stream of “Muuuuum, What can we DOOOO????” Well, wonder no more! QSW&FA
are running a selection of workshops aimed at giving school age children (5 – 18 yrs) a taste of what our group has to offer.
Kids can expect to have a go at a range of activities, from felting to eco dyeing, knitting and weaving. The workshops will run on January 20th and 21st, from 9am to noon and will cost $10 per child (this is primarily to cover the cost of materials used in the workshops.)
