Ventana workshops on the move

June 18, 2019 June 2019 No Comments

Ventana Creative Collective has moved and is now at 20 Jellicoe Street 

Invest in your creativity for the first month of winter!  Four workshops on hand and all bookable online.  June brings in the change of season, shorter days and the opportunity to invest in your creative health.  Spend the time and find the right workshop for you!

On Saturday the first of June we learned the art of portraiture from well known local artist Joya De Geus.  Back by popular demand, learn how to set up the composition of a portrait study using different illustration methods.

Coming Woirkshops:

Writing can do wonders for your health. Beyond keeping your creative juices flowing, regular writing can give you a safe, cathartic release valve for the stresses of your daily life.
Just because we don’t exactly have green thumbs doesn’t mean we can’t see the benefits of living with plants!

“I’m not creative”. “I can’t paint”. If you’ve ever uttered these words, this night is for you! Have a laugh, have a drink, and vote on the worst piece of the night to win a prize!

Ventana will be at your monthly Nake Lady Social meet at Thunderpants headquarters, on Naples Street. Bring all those bits and bobs from your wardrobe to swap, and stay for a surprise fabric centered art workshop!


Two sessions to create your own cement succulent planter. $30 / session. 4th – 11th – 18th.

Here’s to many more creative adventures!
