Designs on Nature Workshop at the Fiji Museum

Designs on Nature Workshop
Unleash your inner artist!
Make personal dragonfly/ butterfly earrings and brooches with Anne
11th April 2015 (Saturday morning 10am to 12pm)

Spend a lovely morning at the Museum veranda learning about Fiji's amazing dragonflies and butterflies through hands on Art and Craft workshop with fabric sculptor and artist Anne O'Brien. Be prepared to be surprised by your own creations with Fiji masi (bark cloth) which you will love to keep or present as a gift to loved ones. All equipment and materials will be supplied. 
Meet at the Fiji Museum Veranda at 9.45am. Workshop is expected to last two hours. Minimum Age: 12 years.
Cost: $10 for members. $15 for non- members. 
Bring your own drinks. Perhaps stay on at the gardens after the workshop with a picnic.

Anne O'Brien is an artist with a passion for conservation and a background in environmental education. She loves using locally sourced recycled fabrics to make life-like sculptures and puppets of endangered and extinct creatures to make a difference to conservation. She can often be found in Suva's second-hand shops feeling clothes for her next creation! This has raised a few eyebrows and questions. She loves a challenge and once made a bird from a takeaway coffee cup! As well as making models for NFMV, Anne is working on the new  NTF Discovery Centre with the team at Sigatoka Sand Dunes.  Anne's 'Anniemals' are being used around the globe for conservation education.
