The program will be free throughout the duration of March, but will cost $5 per person from April. Group bookings of 5-10.

Saturdays, 18 March and 1 April
Join local artist Selma Fida and become your own porcelain jewellery designer in a two-day workshop, held on 18 March and 1 April, for $25 per person. Participants will be guided through the art form’s techniques before creating their own unique jewellery pieces.
