2019 DATES

Memory Box painting dates are:

  • February 24th

  • April 28th

  • June 23rd

  • October 27th



Painting for the Memory Box sessions is from 10 am -12 noon on the mornings of each general meeting. Background techniques are taught and you can choose from various designs for use on the boxes. All boxes and paints are supplied. As some background techniques take time to dry, it is advisable to bring pre-base-coated boxes in pastel colours for use on the day. Blank boxes can be taken at each meeting.  

Memory boxes are given to grieving parents who have lost their babies and we also have a new initiative where we are giving boxes to aged care facilities for nursing home residents to place their activities' photos & other memorabilia, which can then be used as a talking point when friends and family visit, and can be kept by the family when their loved one passes away.
