Animal Families with Tai Snaith
Sunday 12 July at 11.00am
If you and your family were animals what would you be? Snoozy koalas high up in the shady gum trees? Hibernating Polar bears snuggled up reading together? Or perhaps a playful Platypus swimming and searching for food underwater?
Join author and artist Tai Snaith (author and illustrator of The Family Hour in Australia and Sticks and Stones, Animal Homes) for an imaginative, playful drawing workshop where she will help you to draw yourself and your loved ones as your favourite animals. Tai will also read her books and bring original illustrations for you to have a look at.
Signed copies of Tai's books will be available for purchase after the event (cash only). Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Cost: Gallery members $5, non-members $15. This is a ticketed event and online bookings are essential. Click on this link to book your ticket!
