ABOUT STAGE II:
In 2015 Sophie launched a workshop program "Seeds through an Artist's Lens" whilst on residency at the Australian Botanic Gardens in S W Sydney, NSW. This became the 'SeedArtLab' workshops ... named after her studio at her Brisbane home in Queensland.
Having done the starter class you now know what to expect ... the four weeks worth of material STAGE II offers wlll be jam packed with content ... set at two levels of engagement ... tasks you can choose for a lighter approach to start with ... and then, time permitting, some more dense tasks if wanting to extend your options.
The INTRO sessions were a great stepping off point ... Sophie is certainly hoping you will find STAGE II only more rewarding and a wonderful flow on from where you were.
STAGE II will offer more focus quite simply. You'll be able to take things much further all the while deepening your journey through the incredibly vast world of Seed Diversity.
Welcome on board everyone!
SO WHAT EXACTLY IS STAGE II OFFERING?
You will be sent Email NEWSLETTERS in 4 Parts .... containing the course OUTLINE, materials needed + TASKS for each section of the total workshop series.
Anyone who is EXTRA KEEN & with time on your hands can explore a series of EXTRA optional tasks in addition to the given tasks. Those of you currently very busy with competing demands will be able to return to these EXTRA OPTIONS at a later date.
AND of course you will be invited to a NEW Facebook GROUP PAGE which has been set up to cater exclusively to this NEW STAGE II GROUP.
All who've just undertaken the INTRO Online course are now aware its not a formulaic One-size-fits-all approach ... what Sophie normally squeezes into the 2 hour introductory section of her first day on an IN-PERSON WORKSHOPS was set out in the Online course INTRO for participants to choose depending on how much time and energy that had for the given task.
Many participants in the INTRO classes were juggling complex things at home, some with parenting, or caring for elders, working full time or doing it all.
Dropping in at the Facebook Group is entirely optional. During the enormous adjustment participants from all around the globe were making during the first lockdown the FB group was invaluable to many.
However, over time its more likely to be used to simply glance over what others have explored, perhaps get a few ideas or check if you are on track with things.
PLEASE WRITE TO ME if you need to check anything!

Warmest wishes to you all!
