Tea & Cheese Pairing Evening
We’ve all heard of the heavenly combo that is wine and cheese, but what about tea and cheese? Hey, don’t knock it until you’ve tried it, right? Shawty’s Espresso is pairing the unlikely duo this Tuesday night—and we have to admit, it's piqued our interest. Presented by Sarah from Emile & Solange and Kym, of The Steepery Tea Co. fame, this tasting session takes exploring the flavours of everyone’s favourite dairy product to a whole new level. During the evening, both Sarah and Kym will be on hand to guide you through five specially curated tea and cheese pairings, and will be on hand to answer all your qs on the smelly (and brwewd) stuff. Let’s be honest, they had us at cheese. For all the details, click here.

Paper Flowers Art Workshop At Wild Canary
Feeling the stress of everyday life? Take a step back and smell the roses with a workshop on creating gorgeous paper flowers at Wild Canary this Wednesday. Steeped in mindfulness, this workshop will take inspiration from Wild Canary’s lush nursery surroundings and invite you to zone out and focus on creating something beautiful from paper. Led by Brisbane-based artist Lesley Kendall (who just so happens to be the artist in residence at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens), the workshop is all about drawing artistic inspiration from the natural world around you. The ticket price will include guidance from an expert instructor, all materials and a mouth-watering morning tea from the Wild Canary team. Plus, you’ll get to go home with a bouquet of flowers crafted by your own two hands. Not too bad for a Wednesday morning, huh? For all the details, click here.
