Introducing The Creative Camp Of Your Dreams!

Creative People

Ever wanted to go back to school camp, but instead of being joined by some not-so-nice classmates, you’d be mingling with Australia’s brightest creatives? That dream is now a reality thanks to Art Camp, a new event taking place in Queenscliff, Victoria, hosted by Home-Work and Frankie magazine!

Find out what’s in store for this exciting inaugural event.

‘People can expect considered workshops, that not only inform you, but push you, while simultaneously inspiring the hell out of you!’ – Lara Davies

After a decade of teaching short courses around the world, Jess Wright and Lara Davies of Home-Work have founded their biggest creative event yet, in Lara’s hometown!

Art Camp is a two-night event of creative workshops, talks, and activities, happening next month in Queenscliff!

‘We wanted to turn our minds to a new challenge that brought together all the knowledge we have accumulated about how to run workshops, events and how to create opportunities for our students to connect with their own creativity,’ says Lara when describing the vision for Art Camp. ‘We can all remember the magic of school camps where bonds, jokes and memories are forged! There is something about being away from your own life and home that makes you open to new experiences and then it becomes the ideal environment to learn, be creative and push yourself.’

Included in the camp will be a collage-making workshop with designer-illustrator Beci Orpin, digital drawing with illustrator Alice Oehr, phone photography with multi-talented creative Kate Berry, yoga with Dunefolk, and a conversation with the team behind Kip&Co.

‘[These are] truly wonderful workshops that are delivered by people who have dedicated their careers to making and teaching. People can expect considered workshops that not only inform you, but push you, while simultaneously inspiring the hell out of you!’ Lara says.  

When not partaking in the planned activities, attendees will have the opportunity to socialise, connect with nature, walk along the beach at sunrise, sit around a campfire, and look up at the stars.   

All food at Art Camp is being catered by the very talented cook Rachel Savage, aka Sweet & Savage. Attendees will also leave with a gift bag filled with goodies from the hosts and sponsors such as Tsuno, Obus, Leif, Permaset Aqua, and Hardie Grant. 

Lara hopes this will be the first of many Art Camps, and says there’s potential for the next one to be held in New Zealand!

All information about Art Camp can be found here. Early bird tickets are available now
