The most treasured memories with my mother come from simple moments. There’s a reason why recent studies of happiness show that small moments of joy are the key to human happiness. This Mother’s Day, forget big gestures and go to a craft workshop with your mum!
ClassBento welcomes Mums, friends and family to make meaningful moments at creative and uplifting workshops run by Brisbane’s local artists, makers and foodies this Mother’s Day. Arrange flowers, make natural skincare, or pour soy candles together and discover the small joys of quality time.
Indulge in some mother-daughter time and create freeing fluid art at a Sip and Paint with Montana Art Project in Fortitude Valley. Why not pour some acrylic paint on a canvas with your mother and explore the use of intense, vibrant colours? You can also get two original pieces of artwork to keep or give as a gift.
Get cosy in Yeronga or Petrie and make organic soap with Mel from Dragonfly Creative Workshops. Using dried flowers and scented wax, learn how to melt and pour natural soaps with mum. Find out about the craft and science of soap making, and leave with 10-12 unique bars of soap that will probably last you awhile!
Or why not unwind and spend the day putting together a dry flower posy with florist Helena Rose in Fortitude Valley. While enjoying a glass of bubbles, design an everlasting posy using a selection of dried and preserved flowers and foliage, making for an excellent Mother’s Day gift.
