BUILDING YOUR CREATIVE IDENTITY 

Application available at studio@nadamurphy.com.au

Ever wondered where creativity comes from? Do you think some are blessed with "creative genius" and you missed out? Creativity is in all of us to find. Creativity can emerge when it is least expected. Each person’s capacity to engage in a creative process is always a joy. Building a creative identity is not only fun but also important for well being. 

Nada will guide you through a fun relaxing weekend of exploring and expanding your creative self.

Join in the creative challenge, to investigate colour line and sound as some of the many ingredients of creativity.

Play with the eco dye process to establish your connection to the bush

Enjoy the company of others, yarn, share and relax
