Unleash your creative side and show the world your unique style with a handmade paper doll! Join us for our Handmade Eleganza Extravaganza Paper Doll Workshop and make an outfit that expresses who you are or who you want to be. Our workshop provides a fun and exciting experience for adults to get creative and customise their own one-of-a-kind paper dolls. Don't miss out on this opportunity to create something that's truly unique and truly yours!

All you’ll need to get creative:

A4 or large white paper, scissors, some textas or pens for decoration. Vipoo will take us on an adventure to find things around our houses to incorporate into our designs!

Vipoo Srivilasa is a Thai-born, Naarm/Melbourne-based artist, ceramicist and arts activist. His work is a playful blend of European historical figurines, Asian decorative art practices and contemporary culture, often exploring cross-cultural and migration experiences. Collaboration is an important part of his art practice, and he regularly takes part in community-driven projects such as Wellness Deity, which he undertook during the COVID lockdowns. For more than 20 years, Vipoo has exhibited both throughout Australia and internationally, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and Saatchi Gallery, London.
