Creative Hub Workshops

Creative Hub at the Freds Pass Rural Show – free art workshops for adults will be facilitated by 5 local artists during the Saturday and Sunday of the show.

The Creative Hub will be opposite the Creative Pavilion, in an outdoor setting, under the trees. You register on the day on a whiteboard for the upcoming workshop, or if not full by pre-registration, drop in registration will be accepted until the 20 workshop places are full. Each workshop will run for 45 minutes, except for the first workshop on Saturday which is more of a drop-in activity spanning 2 hours.  

These workshops are for adults – we already provide at our show HEAPS of free children’s activities which does include art and craft activities.

This project was made possible by the Australian Governments Regional Arts Fund, which supports the arts in regional and remote Australia.
