Calling all budding artists and creative minds! Join us for an exciting workshop led by Jenna Lee, a Larrakia, KarraJarri, and Wardaman artist and graphic designer known for creating book covers for some of Australia's best-selling authors and poets.

Draw inspiration from your own narrative as you explore the art of incorporating handmade elements into your designs. Craft your book cover with stories that resonate with your personal experiences and perspectives. This workshop is open to everyone from all backgrounds. 

This hands-on design workshop guides you through the creative process, from generating ideas to bringing them to life using experimental design tools and techniques like stamping, collage, drawing, and stencilling.

Connect with fellow teens, share your unique creative journey, and gain insights into a career in graphic design. Foster a supportive and collaborative environment that celebrates the rich tapestry of diversity and individual expression.

At the end of the workshop, showcase your one-of-a-kind book cover designs. Embrace the opportunity to express yourself, celebrate your identity, and take home a tangible piece of art that reflects your own story.
