Join us for Squiggle Sundays

09 Aug 2020

We've teamed up with renowned Australian author and artist, Tai Snaith, to launch 'Squiggle Sundays'  which will include six weeks of ‘squiggles’!

Watch as Tai gives us a preview into her wild imagination as she transforms simple lines and shapes into magical works of art. 

Episode 1: Charlie



A little about Charlie: Charlie, aged 7, says her favourite subject at school is art. In Term 1, she studied Moet with her art teacher Mrs Cook and loved creating her own impressionist masterpiece. Charlie is a bit of a mermaid and is very keen to get back to her weekly swimming lessons where she can practice her favourite swimming style, breaststroke. Charlie loves fashion with her top picks at The Glen being David Jones, Seed Heritage, Cotton On Kids and Gro Kids Shoes.

Episode 2: Janet

A little about Janet: Janet is the lovely manager of our Robinsons Bookshop.
