Typical Gemini, with the concentration span of a gnat & not one for sitting still. My old Da used to say that "you're a long time dead". So my mantra is get busy living.Please join me for more at
This is the workshop which will prove you are creative
Renowned American writer, Kurt Vonnegut, once said "To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it." I keep practising at Colour My Pot, the paint your own pottery studio in Cleveland, in Brisbane's Redlands. Though I can't vouch for personal growth of any kind, I am having a lot of fun!

I have shared my experience with CMP previously. See here.

Manager, Fleur, and her knowledgable (and patient) team have taken the pathway to creativity to another level by introducing various workshops aside from the pottery.

One of the more popular workshops is Board Art. Yes, Board Art. Who hasn't walked into a beach house, cafe or hotel which doesn't have colourful Board Art on the wall?

How gorgeous is this?

You can choose from one of the following sayings:
Follow your Arrow wherever it points
Dream Big Little one
It's a beautiful life
Believe in your Dreams
This is our Happy Place
Happy Birthday
Do more of what makes you happy

Custom sayings are available for an additional fee of $10.00.

Colour My Pot is located at 39 Middle Street, Cleveland, and has street parking. It is also walking distance from cafes, restaurants and the Sands Hotel, should you be looking to make a night of it. Even better, you can take your work of art home with you on the night!

Bookings are essential due to space restrictions. Call 3134 2164 or book via the website here.

NOTE: Due to the use of permanent paints in this class, we highly recommend wearing clothes/shoes that you don't mind getting paint on. Now that's a true mark of getting creative!

I'd not heard of board art before - but of course I've seen in in lots of places and love it. Thanks for the article May.
