To celebrate the opening of our new Fish Lane Studios Interactive/Art Space we’d love to invite you to come and Workshop with Artist – Wyn Vogel (check out her bio for reference) !

This is a special invitation to those of you who have work-shopped with Wyn previously on Kangaroo Point – and/or who have some Art experience and would like to pickup the brushes again after a break from painting and discover some new techniques.

If you are a beginner …… head across to our other Workshops – we have also listed some beginners Workshops if you feel you would prefer to start at the beginning and learn from scratch – tools and techniques...🌞
