April Holiday Workshops

Hi all, 

What a strange time we find ourselves in at the moment! In consulting with various Government and state organisations, I am able to run next week's holiday program in the studio adhering to all new guidelines. This will provide support to families who are still working and need care for their children. It is a revised program to the normal program I would run. 


Reservations (not payment until the night prior) need to be emailed to This allows flexibility for families to cancel if they have to but also myself. Please only book if you genuinely do intend to come as I will be limiting numbers to allow adequate space in the studio and to ensure hygienic cleaning is followed.

Alternatively, I do have art packs and supplies in the studio that you are able to purchase. So please get in touch if you wish to purchase. Stocks are low due to obvious reasons we are currently facing. I can organise postage if you prefer, shipping will be via AusPost and at their postage fees. 

I understand the situation may change daily and I am actively monitoring the situation and advice provided by the Australian Government Department of Health. If I do need to cancel the Holiday Program, those with a booking reservation will be contacted as soon as possible. 


As already advised by the Australian Department of Health:

* If you or your child/ren have been on a recent overseas trip, you will not be permitted in the studio.

* If your child is ill in any way, presenting with a cough or runny nose, your child will not be permitted in the studio.


Thank you for understanding, let’s take care of each other in such uncertain times. 


Kind Regards Rachael

Each day will have a different theme.

You can book in for 1, 2 or 3 sessions.

1 session = $40, 2 sessions $80, all day $110. 

Sessions are not necessarily limited to those art materials and concepts listed. They will form the main technique for learning and use, but other art materials will be used. If your artist finishes a project early, they will have extra creating time using different art materials. If you have been to the studio, you know there are so many exciting supplies and the kids are always asking if they can use this or that.
