Workshop Arts Centre

33 Laurel Street, Willoughby

The Workshop Arts Centre is an independent not-for-profit art centre and workshop facility established in 1961 to promote and foster appreciation in the creative and visual arts.

The Workshop Arts Centre (WAC) provides an alternative to existing art schools and a supplement to existing art societies. The aim is to encourage and develop individual contemporary and challenging work in all fields of artistic expression.

The WAC is supported in its aims and endeavours by a group of independent teaching artists. Today the WAC is a busy place where over thirty teaching and visiting artists offer first-rate tuition across some fifty classes each week, in the fine arts genres of painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, jewellery and children’s art.
