ATASDA workshops are tutored by experienced members, accredited teachers and visiting interstate and international artists.

Workshops are open to beginners and advanced participants. Our workshop organisers recommend you get in early, as workshops fill quickly! Generally places are allocated on a first-in basis.

Workshop places are secured by deposit when booking.

Please note: Materials Fee is paid in workshop to tutor.

Participants should bring their own lunch and cup, unless otherwise stated. Morning and afternoon refreshments are provided.

Workshops are open to non-members by payment of a higher fee. Non-members are encouraged to join the Association. Note that non-members will not be included if a ballot is held for places (when demand is much higher than places allow).
