“Art is not a thing; it is a way.” – Elbert Hubbard
For writers, teachers, ice-skaters, waiters, yoga teachers, designers and every profession in between.
This 2 hour workshop with artist Flutter Lyon is an introduction into the roles that imagination and courage play in your creative process.
Flutter will show you new ways of accessing and telling your artistic story through interactive exercises and discussions, to help you bring your best work into the world.
We will have special guests Dr. Rita Almohty and writer Amy Kyriacou there to talk about the work they’ve done with Flutter in developing their professional careers in a more artistic way.
This workshop is designed to show you how to think more intuitively; create more courageously; and map a life and career course that sings its own song.
Then, Flutter will teach you how to make your very own Ink-Pressings – a beautiful art form that anyone can do, that evokes deeper thinking and relaxation for the mind.
You will walk away with your very own works of art!
Your ticket includes:
– 2 hour creative workshop
– All the materials you need to learn the art of Ink-Pressing
– Take home 2 x mini Ink-Pressings (which Flutter will help you create)
– Morning Tea by our favourite daily cafe – Fleetwood Macchiato

“Her presentations are electrifying and unforgettable, with her charisma and passion felt in every word.
She has developed a striking visual art form known as Ink-Pressing that engages with the human mind on a deep psychological level to stimulate thought and invigorate the imagination.
Her work at once visually stunning, accessible and educational.”
