Pebble Portraits workshop

Live online

Bookings essential - free

This free program will be delivered using Zoom.

To celebrate our Australian Love Stories exhibition, we’re making tokens of affection! Make pebble portraits of the special people in your life or even somewhere you treasure. It could be your bestie, a family member, a particular place, or even a furry, four-legged friend!

Join us from wherever you are and make a pebble portrait of someone you love. You can hide it somewhere in your neighbourhood for others to find or keep it safely tucked away in your pocket!
