Celebrate all things red and juicy by joining artist Charlotte Thodey for a tomato-inspired half-day art class in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney during the Tomato Festival.

As unconventional as she is popular, Thodey’s wildly-wonderful style of vegetable art has graced exhibitions from New Zealand to France. Her fun and fast-paced three-hour art class focusing on the juicy tomato is a must-do element in your Tomato Festival plans. You’ll walk away with your own masterpiece and a new appreciation for the niche but charming world of vegetable art.

Two three hour sessions available, either from 9am - 12pm or 1pm - 4pm. Fan of Charlotte Thodey? Book both sessions for more time to create your masterpiece under her tuition.
