APPLY FOR A RESIDENCY - Applications for Bundanon's 2025 Artists in Residence program are now open


Siteworks Saturday Workshops

A day of relaxed workshops for all ages, providing fun frameworks for thinking about weather, collective activism and the transformative power of natural materials.

These free, drop-in workshops are presented as part of our wider Siteworks 2022: From a deep valley program.


Weather Sculptures

11am-2pm, Mordant Library verandah
(Sessions will be on the hour)

Experiment with found materials to create a sculpture that responds to and interacts with the weather. Investigate kinetic interactions with wind, exploitation of shadows, rain shelters or the gathering/direction of running water. The workshop can be experienced individually or in small groups.

Paper Seeds

11am-2pm, behind the Boyd Education Centre Hall
(Sessions will be on the hour)

Art as action! Explore materiality and transformation through the creation of your own seed paper, then join our afternoon planting session at roving sites across Bundanon.

Drawing Station

11am-2pm, Boyd Education Centre Forecourt
(Drop-in workshop)

The Drawing Station captures our innermost feelings and uses abstract mark-making to explore an internal ‘weather report’. Learners choose naturally-derived inks and pigments gathered from around the site and make experimental paints from raw materials, indicative of the weather and seasons.

Planting Poetry

2-3pm, Brown Shed planting zone
(Drop-in workshop)

Care for Country through the planting of native species as you learn about endemic plants and concepts of regeneration.


Free. No bookings required
