Free Holiday Workshops
Your local Brisbane City Council library will host these fun, free, practical workshops over the coming Christmas Season. Inspired by modern Japanese handicrafts, you will learn to make contemporary Christmas Tree decorations, garlands, wreaths and ornaments.

Japanese inspired Christmas Tree decorations

Colorful, re-purposed materials will be used to create these funky ornaments. There will be five different concepts and techniques incorporated into the projects, which you are welcome to take home and finish. The family based sessions will provide an ideal opportunity to connect with your loved ones in a caring, crafty environment. This event will be ideal for adults, parents and children aged eight years and over.

Your Comment
Most local libraries run activities like this during the school holidays for this age group. I know the Logan City Council; ios running a school holiday program these school holidays with Christmas art leading up to the big day.
Its worth checking out your local library and seeing what free activities they are running.
Also some Spotlight stores run Art Classes during the school holidays. Contact your local store to find out.
