Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

Explore traditional Origami at The Brightest Star Holiday Workshops


Caloundra Regional Gallery is taking Children's Workshops on the road and are presenting a whole week's series of The Brightest Star Holiday Workshops for children at Venue 114, 114 Sportmans Parade, Bokarina between Monday 10 December and Friday 14 December. Ten sessions are available over the five days for children aged between seven and seventeen years of age.

Kim Schoenberger's Brightest Star workshops will explore traditional Origami - the Japanese art of paper folding - and modern design techniques to create colour and texture on paper. Students will design their own original paper using paint transfer and frottage techniques, then create two stunning origami stars, one to take home and one to hang on the installation wall for the 'You're the Brightest Star' exhibit.

Children under sixteen years of age will need a completed parental consent form to attend The Brightest Star Holiday Workshops. Please print out the parental consent form, fill it in and bring it along to the event. Please click here for Parental Form and booking link to The Brightest Star Holiday Workshops.

"When you fold, the ritual and the act of creation is more important than the final result. When your hands are busy your heart is serene"*
吉澤 章 Yoshizawa Akira (1911 2005) Japanese Origami Grandmaster
Cost: $5 - Please click applicable time links above for registration forms.
