Get ready to dive into a whirlwind of creativity at the first-ever Art in the Valley creative workshops event at Kensington Grove Park from June 7 to 9.

The workshop-based showing will welcome experienced art and craft tutors from the Lockyer Valley and surrounding areas to lead an exciting array of workshops.

Art in the Valley coordinator Maz Gibson said creatives could expect 20 unique workshops from textured art, mixed media, and pottery from 14 different tutors.

“The event is designed to support local artists for a teaching opportunity – we have artists from Lockyer Valley, Ipswich and Toowoomba,” she said.

“We start that whole weekend off with a paint and sip evening on the Friday night.”

Mrs Gibson said the event may open the door for creatives to experience an art form they have yet to discover.

“I find that creativity is good for down time,” she said.

“It’s a good outlet for people to escape from their everyday lives.

“This event is an opportunity to try something they’ve never tried before.”

The workshops are open to 16 years and over with some workshops 18 and over.

All workshops need to be pre-booked online by 31 May at www.trybooking.com
