Join Tisha Tejaya for a morning of drawing fresh fruit and vegetables from Darwin’s Rapid Creek Markets, while discussing local recipes from the community!

You are very welcome to bring along a hand-picked item from the markets you’d like to capture on paper, and I’d love to hear about your favourite recipes and anecdotes to do with local produce. I’m always on the lookout for inspiration and you might just make it into the third edition of the Pocketbook…
