On three Sundays in November (13, 20 and 27 November) Gasworks Arts Park are hosting a free family-friendly event called ‘Gasworks Spring Sundays‘.
The program is chock full of arty and creative experience for families plus food trucks, wine tasting and live music.
During our visit on the first Sunday 13 November we try our hand at coppersmithing with resident artist Benjamin Storch…
….learn some circus skills….
…play old-fashioned lawn games…
… and eat a huge toastie for lunch ($10)!
There is lots of programming we miss due to weather, lack of time and energy – Vinyassa Disco Yoga with Nickie Hanley, Botanical Drawing with resident artist Gilly Thorne, Blindfolded Portraits with resident artist Arthur Ted Powell, Play With Clay with resident artist Ursula Dutkiewicz, and Make Your Own Puppets From Recycled Junk with Trash Puppets and making wind chimes with resident artist Tanja George. But we leave full and happy after our free morning outing.
On Sunday 20 and 27 they will have Bunnings leading a workshop called Build A Cubby House Village. This will be made entirely from recycled boxes so kids large or small can get creative and sustainable.
