Born to Create: LEARN + CREATE PAPER COLLAGE

This workshop takes you through a self-exploration journey where you’ll create your very own work of art. I will be there to help spark your imagination and provide all the materials you need to bring all ideas to life.

The workshop is designed to be a fun and empowering experience; using art to explore the lives and work of great women who’ve come before us and to find our own inspiration. Women don’t have to be famous to be inspiring, the collage could be based on your favourite teacher, friend, sports coach, auntie or parent, the idea is to celebrate the person you admire and understand the reasons why they are so inspirational. We’ll explore the inspiring women in our communities as well as those known worldwide and then you will work on a hand-embellished paper collage on canvas.

Please bring a photo or photocopies of women you find inspirational. At the end of this workshop, you will take home your paper collage on A2 size canvas, varnished with clear coat.

All materials provided, enrolment and prepayment is essential.

The young Australian born and Nashville based virtuoso recently described as ‘the finest guitar player of his generation’ brings his world tour back home!

The story goes that Daniel Champagne first picked up his instrument of choice as a 5-year-old following in the footsteps of a music father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing wherever he could, honing his craft and developing the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he left school, turned professional and hit the road without looking back.

The following years have seen him release four studio albums, tour relentlessly around the globe with upwards of 300 shows per year, play some of the biggest festivals under the sun and share stages with the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, INXS, John Butler, Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, Judy Collins and Rodrigo y Gabriela.

Daniel is now regarded as a leading light in acoustic music, with a firm reputation for dropping jaws, making crowds buzz and breaking guitars wherever he goes

Do not miss this show. They have been selling out all over the world!

WHAT THE PRESS SAY..

“The word Prodigy seems to entirely fall short of this soft-spoken young man’s skills, he coaxes sounds and melodies out of his instrument that literally drop jaws.” The Calgary Herald, CANADA

Today I saw the future of Folk – Festival goers flocking in the thousands towards the main stage to witness a young musical phenomenon from Australia dish out an absolute show-stopper.” The Firefly Column, USA

Daniel Champagne is a crossroads. Fusing the strong traditions of Blues, Folk and other roots art with pop showmanship and admirable lyrical ability. I firmly believe that he will become an ambassador for roots music in a time where it desperately needs representation.” The Indie Blender, CANADA

“reinventing roots guitar” Rhythms Magazine, AUSTRALIA

Watching Daniel Champagne perform is a once in a lifetime experience. He is a true prodigy that plays like no one else could possibly play unless they spent at least two lifetimes studying the art.” BW Review, NEW ZEALAND

‘Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical’ Themusic.com.au, AUSTRALIA
