I'm a mother of four with two coeliac children. I'm always on the lookout for great gluten-free spots around Brisbane and feature gluten-free cooking in my blog: coeliacfamily.blogspot.com.au
I'm also a muso and enjoy live music around town.

Kids art classes these holidays
These Christmas Holidays keep your kids busy and creative by sending them along to art classes with local artist, Lisa Taylor-King. At just $25 a session, these classes are a bargain, and a great way to find to a bit of time to do some Christmas shopping while the kids are kept busy building their fine motor skills and developing their creativity.
Children participate in a range of artistic activities
Children can choose from a range of classes, designed for children from four and up. Some of the topics include "Stencil & Paint", "Watercolour and Wax", "Mural Art", "Painting and Drawing", "Collage and Assemblage" and "Clay Creations". During the class, children participate in a variety of activities to keep them on the go and with only six in a group, Lisa is able to ensure that they will all receive plenty of attention and guidance.
Lisa's studio is filled with great artwork which serves as inspiration as the children work
The art classes take place in Lisa's studio in Thurlow Street in Newmarket. While there, you may even find some Christmas gifts for family and friends, as you peruse Lisa's artworks and furniture and fine decor on display from artistic friends. The children's classes would make a great gift for Grandparents to give to grandchildren too - a double gift - with time-out for Mum and Dad as an added bonus!
The results of their endeavour were bright and colourful
Timetabled classes will run in the first week of the school holidays as well as throughout January. Lisa will even arrange a class by appointment - a great idea for a different kind of birthday party for the little artist in your life. Lisa's friendly nature and helpful tuition will see your child coming home with great artwork and a few new skills and creative ideas. The classes run for one and a half hours and include all of the supplies needed for them to create their next masterpiece. You can book by calling or texting Lisa on 0404323067, or find out more by visiting www.lisataylorking.com.
The studio is tucked away in a hub of artistic businesses in Newmarket
