WEEKEND WORKSHOPS

BSA Workshops are usually held over one weekend, from 10am to 4pm. Workshops allow for intensive focus on a diverse range of visual arts subjects and mediums, with experienced teachers who are nationally-recognised practicing artists. The contact time involved for a weekend workshop is usually about half as many hours as for our standard six-week short courses. 

All classes are held at 112 Dalley Street, MULLUMBIMBY
