”The Fantastical Tea Party invites Friends”

Extending Light Nelson 2018's Fantastical Tea Party, students will fully immerse in creating for a week.


Exploring the theme of 'party', students will create their unique and individual 'bestie' to attend.

These 'besties' will be the honoured guests at the final mini exhibition / display of students work.

This will take place on the last day, with students, family and friends invited to attend the

opening of their very own Fantastical Tea Party.

The week will start with imaginative brain storming and concept development. Progressing into

sketching and printing of friend possibilities in preparation for construction in 3D form. Using wire

and recycling found objects, the imagined 'bestie' will come to life, partying with glow in the dark

paint and black light. These 'friends' will be the honoured guests at our Fantastical Tea Party.

Students will be encouraged to explore their unique and individual idea's while learning new

techniques and creative skills, in a fun and friendly environment of like minded people. With the

Queens Gardens to hand and The Suter Galleries at our door, inspiration will abound.


'I wish this was a school and I could go to it all the time!'
