Makers Escape comes to St Paul’s

Posted on September 23, 2018

St Paul’s School is thrilled to have been chosen as the venue for an exciting creative workshop retreat on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 October. With its hub in the library and Sippers courtyard, this event is being run by Ministry of Handmade, one of Brisbane’s premier destinations for creative “handmade” experiences.

With workshop offerings including loom weaving, spoon carving, screen printing, linocut printing, creative embroidery, cheese-making, basket weaving, paper making, lampshade making, bag making, resin jewellery and brush script lettering, there will be lots to get those creative juices flowing!

Created by past parents and staff, Julie and Maurice Hillier, this truly unique event will be right at home at St Paul’s. Julie says, “We designed Makers Escape to be an event where you can leave behind the cares of your everyday for a weekend and nurture your creative spirit . . . where you can celebrate slow, immerse yourself in making, learn new skills, enjoy great food (yes, it’s fully catered with champagne lunches!) and make new friends. We are excited about our range of workshops and our line-up of talented and passionate tutors with a heart for sharing their craft.”

For those coming from out of town to attend the event, there is also optional accommodation available at the new 4.5 star hotel tower at Eatons Hill.
