Pop Up Workshops

Pop Up Workshops will be held throughout the year.
They will be held on Friday mornings, Saturday afternoons and Tuesday nights.

There will be a wide range of art and craft activities, such as watercolour painting, needle felting, mosaics, drawing and pottery.

Some classes will be directed at adults only and others will be a parent and child session and sometimes I will run workshops just for children.

If you are interested in hearing about the pop up workshops as they come up make sure you email Fiona at sunnysidearthouse@gmail.com to go on the email distribution list.

Previous pop up workshops have been: 

Pottery for Adults Pop Up Workshop Another ladies night out including wine and nibbles.  Settle into the studio to learn how to make various pottery sculptures, bowls and plates.  You can enroll in one or both sessions.  If you attend both sessions you will be able to apply underglaze and sgraffito (scratch patterns) OR add Japanese tissue transfers onto your creations in the second week. All work will be fired and returned in a few weeks.  If you wish for a clear glaze to be added and a second firing to be done there will be an additional charge of $10.  Very large sculptures may attract an additional charge.
Cost - $20 for each person a session

  1. This is my favourite day of the month! I think I've only missed two since they started. I just love being able to relax in the amazingly tranquil setting, amongst friends and release my creativity and my love of art and craft. Highly recommended!!!
