Plant Press This workshop starts by taking a look at leave shapes. They are gifts from Nature. One way to preserve them is to use a plant press. It is a simple but very effective tool. Leaves and flower parts are dried and flattened, and are then used as plant specimens in the study of Biology, in arts such as leaf painting and leaf rubbing, and in crafts such as using dried leaves and flower parts to make into cards, bookmarks and in scrap booking. This hands-on workshop includes the making of a plant press which you can take home with and tips on pressing of plant specimens and leaf rubbing technique.

Sketchnotes Sketch notes are a visual mind mapping tool. I’ll be teaching kids how to sketchnote and better remember information they learnt at school or at the faire, based on Mike Rohde’s sketchnotes textbook.
Presentation
What are sketchnotes, why Sketchnotes are important, how it helps to retain information, why people should pick it up.
Cost: $10 to be paid to the instructor (Register)

Pinata with a Twist Pinatas are fun but some may find them too violent. Come join us to learn an innovative way to create a new kind of pinata that open via pulling instead of hitting. In the spirit of Project Love Lunch, goodies collected from these pinatas must be shared. Proceeds from the workshop will go to support Project Love Lunch. https://www.facebook.com/ProjectLoveLunch/)
Cost: $18 Registration details coming soon
