A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US
The Art House is a venue where artists and craft people of all levels, from beginners to long time artists, can come together in a friendly community environment to further their studies and understanding of all in its forms.
We hold regular weekly classes in Watercolours, Printmaking, Painting, Life Drawing, Pottery and Mosaics. We also have a programme of Weekend Workshops which are run by a variety of prominent artists. All classes and workshops are available to non-members and members.
The Art House is available for members to use as a studio space, away from the distractions we often find at home!
Facilities include 2 x printing presses for etching & printing, 2 x electric kilns for pottery that are suitable for bisque firing and temperatures up to firing for porcelain, and 2 x electric kilns for glass fusing & slumping.
Due to Covid-19, a schedule has been created for times when the Art House will be open. There will be number limitations to keep everyone safe. This schedule, to attend paid Classes, complimentary Classes, Workshops and for when the space can be utilised as a Studio-Away-From-Home, will be forwarded to all Members.
Friday’s, 9am – 4pm, are the group activity days for the Spinning & Weaving, Patchwork and Textiles groups.
All members are eligible to display their work in the Art House or at our Annual Queen’s Birthday Weekend Art Show.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of this land, the Wadawurrung, and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and culture. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
