Each school holidays, the lovely ladies and minds behind Jacana Kids hold local eastie workshops for school kids were they put on their designer hats and create totally UNIQUE masterpieces. Mamma's favourite is the Deisgn Your Own Character workshop. With textas at the ready, kiddos went on to draw and design their very own character! After a couple of weeks, a very talented artist brings these drawings to life in the form of a plush toy. We bet you have never seen a kitty cat like this at the shops before. Certainly one of a kind! While at the workshop, kids make more designs on a calico bag so no one leaves empty handed.
These September school holidays, the Design Our Own Character Workshop is being held at Box Hill Community Arts Centre on September 27, 2018. The Design Your Own Tee Workshop will be at Mitcham Community House on October 4, 2018.
Mamma's special mention: Jacana Kids also offer more creative masterpieces on their website. Designs can go on t-shirts, mugs or drink bottles, as well as a whole range of other kids clothing and products on their website. The other thing that warms Mamma's heart? 50% of the business' profits go to local children's charities and health organisations.
