Community Flower Studio (CFS) is a Not-for-Profit Social Enterprise (established in 2019) with a vision to ‘Help Youth Learn Life Skills and Find Meaningful Employment’. CFS will be hosting a ‘Mental Health Month Creative Weekend’ offering 4 Virtual workshops for Families in Sydney and surrounds for the weekend on 16-17th Oct 2021. This is a free event jointly sponsored by CFS and the City of Sydney Council through a community matching grant. There will be 2 workshops conducted in English, one in Mandarin and one in Cantonese. Here is the link for more details and the online registration form: Mental Health Month Creative Weekend – Community Flower Studio
To reach out to CALD communities, we will also offer workshops in Cantonese and Mandarin in addition to English. This workshop will combine a Succulent Terrarium Workshop with Asian Paper Lantern making. The lanterns symbolize ‘SHINING A LIGHT’ to keep our HOPE up to get out of the current COVID-19 Lockdown. We believe there is ‘LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL’. It will be a very good family bonding activity. Each family will create their unique succulent terrarium and a traditional paper lantern.
Dr. Bibiana Chan, the facilitator, first hosted a succulent terrarium workshop in 2018 at an RUOK? event. This will be her 18th workshop. She will also share her thoughts about ‘LOCKDOWN AND COPING STRATEGIES! Gardening, sure, is one of them. Places are limited, register today!
