Retro Deco with Gemma Black

Dear Members and Followers,

We are lucky enough to have the wonderful Gemma Black conducting a two day workshop for the us entitled "Retro Deco"

In this weekend workshop we will be taking a look back on the lettering samplers of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements of the late 1800’s and early 1900’s and creating not only painted coloured pieces and in designs like Charles Rennie Mackintosh & Margaret McDonald  created but working with line drawn pen and ink work with substantial 1920’s modernism. 

 Saturday 30 September and Sunday 1 October 2017 - Sylvania Community Hall, Canberra Rd, Sylvania

We are proudly supported by Sutherland Shire Council.
