TOURS & TALKS

FOR MEMBERS ONLY

TOURS
A great way to learn more about artists, subjects and back stories attached to our national and local art collections. Tours of public exhibitions as well as behind the scenes tours with museum staff and galleries are organised several times a year. Each tour fee includes a donation to the institution on tour. Members often linger over a cuppa afterward.

TALKS
Join us for talks and demonstrations in our studio from artists and industry experts and take advantage of a chance to learn and ask questions from art making practice to practical helps from suppliers and related industry support.

Come along, meet other members and join in the conversation over refreshments.
