Coffee, cake and creativity!
Our Tondo workshops are perfect for special events like birthdays, wedding parties, team building or simply just for fun with friends. Join artists and art educators Pamela Brown and Kerry Mackay to channel your creativity over cake and coffee.
Pamela will paint a small circular portrait (tondo) of each person whilst Kerry will lead you through ways to embellish your tondo portrait. Play with colour, paint & collage. You get to take away your own signed portrait by Pamela Brown and framed fabulously by yourself.
For groups of three or more. Get in touch with us to book your event.
