Creative workshops at Butter Factory Arts Centre
  • Friday 27 January 2012

Sunshine Coast Council has launched the Butter Factory Arts Centre workshop program for the start of 2012.

Manager Library and Gallery Services, Ross Duncan said the workshops offer great opportunities for people to learn new skills or enhance their existing skills.

"Council has developed these workshops in close collaboration with local creative artists, and the variety of the workshops reflects the high level of interest in creative arts on the Sunshine Coast," Mr Duncan said.

"Every year, we offer courses for the public, and this year, we have increased the number of courses based on community demand.

"Workshops in the first term include digital photography, weaving, life drawing, pottery, sculpture, painting and jewellery making.

"We have developed courses for children, young people and adults and the artists will share their skills and experience with students in a fun and informal atmosphere.

"These courses offer a fantastic opportunity for people to come along, improve their skills and make new friends at the same time."

The Butter Factory Arts Centre in Cooroy offers gallery and workshop space, and will be offering many courses throughout 2012, along with their regular exhibitions.

More information about the courses can be obtained by visiting the Butter Factory Arts Centre or the Cooroy Library. Bookings are essential and people are encouraged to confirm their place for each workshop. Call the Butter Factory Arts Centre for more information on 5454 9050.
