Spark creativity with Saturday Sessions at the Bas


An exciting workshop program at the Basil Sellers Exhibitions Centre (the Bas) is back by popular demand to inspire locals and visitors to get crafty and creative.

For three hours on the second Saturday of each month, the Bas will buzz with creativity as participants learn to use tools and techniques from Eurobodalla’s talented artists.

Eurobodalla Council’s creative arts development coordinator Indi Carmichael said participants did not need any prior experience and could take home something tangible they had created.

“We were keen to provide a series of workshops where participants could immerse themselves in a fun and hands-on class, while learning artistic techniques,” Ms Carmichael said.

“We’re thrilled this program was so popular last year with almost every Saturday Session sold out. The feedback from participants was overwhelmingly positive and their creations were magnificent.

“It’s also great to see the Djinima and Bunjala rooms at the Bas being used as the purpose-built creative spaces they were designed to be. It’s all about creating this hub of vibrancy and creativity for the community.”

Bookings are beginning to flow in for this year’s workshops, which include:

  • Kokedama with Annette Boyd

  • Pushing Pastels with Stuart Whitelaw

  • Bead Threading with Virginia Aland

  • Seaweed Art with Sarah Gorst

  • Leadlighting with Andrea Warren

  • Macrame with Annette Boyd

  • Art of Wire with Andrea Warren

  • Fascinating Millinery with Anne Colquitt

  • A Chorus Line – Vocal Workshop with Kim Edgar-Lane
