SLQ Shop craft workshops - spring 2016

Kirigami — the gentle art of Japanese paper cutting

This event is now in the past.

Join Brisbane-based artists and designers for evening hands-on workshops as they share their craft in the intimate setting of the SLQ Shop.

All materials are provided, and you can purchase additional kits and equipment, as well as stunning ready-made pieces from the artists to inspire your crafting at home.
