Open Studios Sunshine Coast not only features the regions finest artists sharing their creative spaces, but also offers participating artists the opportunity to run an exclusive series of workshops. Painting, sculpting, printmaking, and photography are just some of the skills visitors can discover or develop over the 5 days between the two weekends.

Workshops will be open to the general public as well as artists, and promoted in our printed & digital guide, online and through our social channels. Almost all of the workshops sold out last year and had great feedback.

This year Artists will set up and manage their own workshops. To register to run a workshop:

  1. Create your event in eventbrite or through your own website.
  2. Register your workshop here with Open Studios Sunshine Coast.

Once you have registered your workshop Open Studios will create an event page for your workshop which will link directly to your eventbrite event or workshop booking on your website.

NOTE: There will be a fee of $50 for every workshop registered to cover admin, marketing & digital campaign costs, in our guide and through our social channels.
