WORKSHOPS

Escape and Try Something New

Feel like taking a 'Ferris Bueller Day Off' and trying something new?

Would you like to learn how to paint?  or have a go at dry stone wall building?

Are you interested in marble and stone and creating a mosaic panel for your garden?

I'm convinced everyone can be creative; it's just a matter of giving it a go - in a relaxing country escape in the beautiful Southern Highlands.

Visit our gallery for mosaic art, material and supplies for sale. And, if you are searching for a creative gift for a friend, contact us for a gift voucher.
