Time Out Melbourne

This venue is closed

Spiritual home of a gaggle of local artists in Abbotsford. Expect exhibitions, readings, installations, performances and more

Photos on the Schoolhouse Studio blog show sunkissed artists enjoying sewing classes, communal meals, barber shop sessions and general merrymaking, with chickens roaming around. Curated by filmmaker Alice Glenn and printmaker, painter and illustrator Elizabeth Barnett, the studio is home to roaming events and can play host to almost any arty shindig.

On the site of the old St Joseph's Technical College there are convent quarters, classrooms, and orchard and vegetable garden that supplies a picturesque place for afternoon tea and a chat. Sadly, Schoolhouse Studios will only exist on this site for a few time as it is due to be demolished to make way for town houses. Elizabeth and Alice are looking for a new home for the creative space.

Check the blog for regular events, exhibitions, writers groups and markets.
