Lipstick Lane Atelier proudly presents #imadeitmyself creative self-love workshops in collaboration with WINDO and International Women’s Week to bring our sisters together in a boutique creative high tea experience. This will be the opening event for International Women’s Week and WINDO founder Jeanette Dal Santo will be sharing her journey thus far and inspiring us to join her movement of “together women can create a better world”.

We will spend the morning connecting and inspiring while enjoying decadent desserts and sumptuous savouries served in old fashioned teacups & vintage high tea stands. We will then join talented, open-hearted local women sharing their unique talents and gifts. Explore a new craft, re-ignite a passion for an old one in an afternoon of good old crafty play and laughter !! At this boutique event, we will be offering 5 different crafts for you to choose from with limited seats available in each. 

This event will be the culmination of multiple successful “ women to women"  collaborations built within the Lipstick Lane community over the past 2 years. We would be delighted for you to join us for a boutique, intimate gathering of feminine power, beauty & creativity

The human ability to find hope, resilience and self-worth can move some of us beyond what we thought was capable. Gabby Sutherland states. “The concept behind this exhibition Q&A event is about building resilience, finding joy in the day and finding solutions based on kindness, through storytelling no matter how hard life gets. It’s also about the secret collaboration between women.”
