Our Studio

Our amazing purpose built art studio & gallery is based at the popular creative hub, The Abbotsford Convent. Its 11 historic buildings, gardens and car park are spread over 6.8 hectares in a sweeping bend in the Yarra River and are surrounded by the Collingwood Children’s Farm and Yarra Bend Park.

With a focus on creativity, culture and learning the Convent is now home to over 100 artist studios and offices for small businesses, a radio station, four eateries, an open air cinema, food and craft markets, two galleries, an extensive program of events and venues for rehearsals, performances, classes, workshops & conferences.

Our studio is a an open and inviting creative space where most of our programs start and finish. It is fully accessible and our participants make use of quality art supplies, modern technology and internet based at the space on a daily basis. Our close neighbours include the Wurundjeri Tribe Land Cultural Heritage Council, Collingwood Children’s Farm & Shadow Electric Open Air Cinema among many others. Being at the Abbotsford Convent has afforded us amazing opportunities to collaborate with a variety of exciting organisations.
