Mys­tery box to kick­start your crafty year

South Burnett Times - - PULSE -

TWO Sis­ters Art’s sub­scrip­tion box is giv­ing lo­cal artists the op­por­tu­nity to be cre­ative on a bud­get.

Ta­nia Cor­bet, the cre­ator of Two Sis­ters Art, said it was the per­fect op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to in­dulge their in­ter­est in art and craft.

“It’s a mys­tery box sub­scrip­tion. Each month they don’t know ex­actly what they’re get­ting, so they’re just sam­ples of prod­ucts that come in a larger quan­tity or a big­ger pack, so they can have a play with­out spend­ing so much money on some­thing that they might not like,” she said.

“It’s $30 a month, and the first box is over $60 worth of value in there, and then each month af­ter it’s got $45 worth of value. It’s all $30 if it’s pick up, and $40 if it’s posted.”

Ms Cor­bet said more peo­ple were join­ing as part of a new year’s res­o­lu­tion to be more cre­ative.

“We’ve found lots of peo­ple are want­ing to be more cre­ative this year. We ba­si­cally want to help give them some­thing to do with these boxes,” she said.

“A lot of moth­ers or peo­ple like that of­ten just want some time off, so these are per­fect for them.”

For peo­ple us­ing the sub­scrip­tion as a way to learn artis­tic tech­niques, the costs in­clude some spe­cial on­line lessons.

“We also have two artists that do YouTube videos us­ing all the prod­ucts for that month, so if you sign up, then you’re put in an exclusive Face­book group that shows videos and what you can do with the prod­ucts,” she said.

“We’re here to give guid­ance, so it’s more about the process rather than the prod­uct.”

Prod­ucts avail­able from Two Sis­ters Art.
