we are offering classes in printmaking, book binding, oil painting as well as a series of one day workshops.

Festival Exhibition

January 18, 2010

The Cygnet Folk Festival weekend of 8-9-10th January was an opportunity for the many thousand festival visitors to Cygnet to visit Balfour House.  The exhibition of work made by participants of the 2009 Community Arts program was well received.  Visitors were impressed in the quality of the work made and the variety of techniques taught.

The exhibition also displayed the art made by the ‘inhouse’ artists.  Jerome Dobinson launched his new range of ARTIST SKETCH BOOKS which were an instant success.  Jerome has developed this new product after participating in the 2009 book binding program.

Some works in the exhibition were for sale and nearly all work available sold.  It was purchased by local residents as well as interstate visitors.
