Arts Programs

 We support diverse arts and cultural programs that celebrate sculpture, visual, craft, literature, music, dance, theatre, singing, film and animation across a range of styles, genres and practices.

Our Winter program of arts activities includes creativity for all ages and stages:

Fantasy Journal Workshops

Tuesdays 30 Jul, 6 Aug  and Saturday 10 Aug • 1-4pm • Raglan Cottage 
‘Mod’ your own fantasy journal with bespoke art materials and make distinctive decorated pages to record your ideas, sketches, notes or drawings in. Take your journal home and use it to keepsake anything from your daily diary to your favourite travel mementos.   Local artisan Robyn Wilson will show you the steps to creating a classic hand-made journal.

All materials are provided and this workshop does not require previous art experience. 

Make sure you also get along to Robyn’s display of art journals at Melton Library and Learning Hub after the workshop!
