Ever wanted to try a few art classes? No need to travel to the city – Bunjil Place Gallery has a year-long program of monthly Wednesday Workshops starting at 7.00 pm for adults. It’s a chance to meet like-minded people and learn some hands-on creative skills.

You don’t have to be an artist to join in – the workshops are held in the Gallery in a relaxed environment and are suitable for beginners. Just come along with an open mind and be ready to give it a go!

There’s a $30 fee for each Workshop which covers all the materials you need and refreshments. See what’s coming up below.
