Where is the studio?
My studio is a part of the Swan Street Artist Studio complex. We are on Level 1 of 550 Swan Street Richmond. Its a contemporary art space run by Professional Artists, you’ll love having your workshop in this unique first floor warehouse. It’s a creative, fun, safe, friendly and stimulating environment. You’ll love being here!
Car parks are surprisingly easy to find around our studios. We are on the intersection of Swan Street, and Bendigo Street, Richmond.
You can often park right outside – fortunately we are at the quiet end of Swan Street. But remember the parking here is 2 hours so we’ll get you to set your alarm and make sure we all move our cars at the 2 hour point. Remember there are Clearways in Swan Street, Richmond.
According to Google, there’s a 6-minute walk from Burnley Railway Station to 550 Swan Street (its 450 metres away). Tram 70 stops a few metres from our front door.
I run loads of private workshops.
Make it a gathering with family and friends for an exclusive workshop. Let us know and we’ll tailor an experience just for you. Don’t be shy, bring your family and friends and have the studio to yourselves! It’ll be so much fun. Its a great catch up venue for you all and a fabulous way to create memories together.
I am always happy to add other dates or create a private workshop for you and your friends, if that suits you better. Just let me know..
You’ll be photographed during this workshop, please let me know if you don’t want this to happen.
