Daily schedule and inclusions:

  • 9am Each day, the event begins at Nowra Bus Terminal, Stuart Place, Nowra. Participants will travel to Bundanon on a shuttle bus with a member of Bundanon staff.
  • 9.30am – 4.30pm See program details below. Lunch, morning and afternoon tea are included.

  • 5pm Shuttle bus arrives at Nowra Bus Terminal. Event ends.


Day One: Explore the Art Museum and enjoy a guided ecology walk through the Bundanon bushland. In our artmaking workshop, we explore the huge scale of myths, transforming feelings and ideas through abstraction. Respond to a line of text from a range of myths, including those in the exhibition. This text will inspire a large format work on paper using handmade brushes and Bundanon bushfire charcoal inks. 

Day Two: In the morning, heroes, villains, mythical creatures and monsters go on quests and adventures in your hand-made flexible artist book. Use gouache and pencil and both sides of the concertina book to communicate the multiple perspectives of your fantastic story. In the afternoon, work with a friend to find dark and light in the natural environment and create shadows using paper cutouts to obscure and hide yourself (or your representative) in a series of black and white photos. If you have access to your own camera or smart device, please bring this. Access to a device is not a barrier to joining the program, Bundanon will have something for you to use.
