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.

Some of the workshops listed are particularly unique opportunities to engage with national and international artists who are staying at the BSA Ralph Woodford Residency and are offering the workshops as a cultural exchange with our community. Artists on the Residency Program in coming months are: animator & film editor Rowena Crowe, film maker and multi-disciplinary artist Peter Humble, and Archibald Prize winning painter Yvette Coppersmith. See below for details of their workshops.

All classes are held at 112 Dalley Street, MULLUMBIMBY
