Local Sydney artist Melissa Carey’s work has been shown nationally and internationally. She teaches creative workshops and believes in encouraging, nurturing and supporting everyone to bring out their natural creativity. Melissa has been teaching workshops for adults over the last 3 years, and is expanding to share her passion with kids. Melissa regularly volunteers at the Sydney Children's Hospital teaching art workshops to the kids in the Mental Health Ward to brighten their day.

Melissa will be teaching modern craft workshops for kids during the school holiday period for kids aged 6-15 years. 3 hour sessions or full-day sessions available. Each workshop will have one-two craft projects available with all materials inclusive in the cost, where the kids are able to follow instructions to make the modern craft using their own creative expression and style and take home their finished craft pieces along with their new skills. There will be no paper plates or toilet rolls here - only high quality materials used for the best craft projects in Sydney! 

Cost: $50 per workshop per child.

PLEASE NOTE: You will be required to sign in at the beginning of the workshop and sign out when picking up your kids, and outline any allergies or important information. Double workshops on the same day can be purchased - please provide lunch for your kids, there will be a 30 minute break in between workshops and we will sit on the grassed area outside my studio.
