Mail art is about sending small scale works through the post!

The tradition of sending decorated envelopes or postcards has long been practised by artists. The envelopes themselves have evolved into their own form of mail art, often sent through the mail with little or nothing in them. Integrating the sender and recipient addresses, and the postage required to send the envelope is often an integral part of the envelope’s design.

In this workshop, Fran will demonstrate how to make a small-scale artwork. Learn about collage, using colour, texture, and image placement. She'll give tips and guidelines on how to use everyday materials to create artistic mail.

Join the snail mail revolution and reach out to others through art. In doing so we can make our own hearts feel better, too.

The workshop is hosted in the Blue Mountains, Lady Bird Studio / Karinya which has expansive views over a valley of trees, the property backs onto the national park.

Please note: The workshop will only go ahead if there are two or more participants - anyone booked will be moved to a new date that suits them.

Fran is an artist; an educator, neither overshadows, they simply entwine and enrich one another.

At a young age Fran discovered the value of creating art in her daily life. The act of art helped          Fran express her identity.  The process of developing an idea, especially with jewellery, seeing          that idea come to completion by Fran's own hand filled her with satisfaction and accomplishment.  Fran began to see how creating art helped other aspects of my life and learning.

Fran is inspired by nature, patterns, form and texture. Each created piece portrays a slice of life, a perspective of the world in which we all live. Her mediums span painting and jewellery to collage and stitching. They all bring joy, though not everything turns out how she envisaged.

In particular Fran sees the unique design and individually handcrafted nature of bespoke jewellery as an ornamental way of extending personal self-expression. During the creative process, she is mindful that someone will be wearing the piece and it will come alive only when it finds its owner.

Fran is most comfortable in the studio classroom teaching art than in any other place or endeavour. It fills her soul to help others learn by exposing them to tools, materials and techniques of Fran's trade and then develop their skills and confidence in the creative medium.

Through support, conversation and laughter, I set a welcoming scene of free expression.

Ladybird Design Creative Studio is the culmination of creating a life around my passions of art, jewellery and teaching. It frees Fran to take a piece of silver, blank canvas or paper, turn it into a beautiful thing and share it with the world every day. Fran believes now more than ever that pursuing one’s passions makes life more colourful and vibrant, gives us pleasure and purpose, but most of all it reminds us of who we are.

Fran would love to share the joy of creating and making with you.
