Flutter down to Fig Tree Community Garden at 10am on Sunday 27th November for your chance to make a mark! A butterfly shaped mark that is, on the wall of the Croatian Club, adjacent to the Garden. As part of ‘Seed’, an ongoing series of Octapod initiated art workshops, visitors to the garden will invited to paint a fine flock of butterflies on the Croatian Club's wall.
With the Croatian Club fast establishing itself as an edgy and eclectic music venue, this is a great chance to contribute to the rock n’ roll lifestyle of Newcastle’s upcoming bands. In future years, when rock historians pore through early band photographs of tomorrow’s legendary musicians, imagine their delight when they see your butterfly lurking in the background of the shot!
Seed is facilitated by artists Helen Hopcroft, Trevor Horsnell and Karen Robinson Smith. If you can’t draw for diddly, no need to stress: we’ll have an easy to use butterfly stencil with plenty of assistance on hand. The workshop is suitable for both children and adults, but please wear old clothes, as butterflies can be messy creatures.
