Penrith Regional Gallery Winter Workshops

Click to enlarge
Every day until Fri 19 Jul 2019
These Winter School Holidays, Penrith Regional Gallery will run a program of two hour workshops for children aged up to 12 themed around houses and architecture inspired by the Gallery’s winter exhibition suite The Housing Question. All materials are supplied, all skill levels are welcome, and kids need to wear old clothes and bring a snack. It’s a great opportunity to get creative during the school holidays; book in with a friend or come on your own and have fun.

Costs is $30 per child; adults don’t pay but can stay. The Family Workshop at the end of the month has a price of $12 per child; this is so parents are able to bring multiple children at a discounted price.

We are hoping to have online bookings available in 2019, but in the meantime, you’ll need to pay by credit card over the phone in order to book. These workshops often book out, so our advice is to get in quickly.

Bookings are essential for all workshops.
