Winter chills may make you feel like holing up with some hot chocolate and a DVD box set, but it’s also a great time of year to embrace your inner artist. Colourbox Studio in Melbourne has several workshops for indoor types who still like to get their hands kind of dirty – or colourful, at least. How about creating something bright and cheerful to hang on the lounge room wall at the screen printing class, decorating a piece of silk to wear (or simply admire) at the silk painting class, or making your own pretty beaded necklace at the jewellery workshop? And if you prefer art on a smaller scale, try a nail art class: just think, once you’ve mastered a few skills you can get some friends over for a nail art party – and have your DVDs and hot chocolate too. Check the Colourbox Studio website for dates and times, and get ready to brighten up your world this June!
