This free costume-making workshop precedes the Bush Bash Barn Dance – a family-friendly jamboree happening from 6.30pm in the Main Hall.
Come early to Arts House and join us in a fun costume-making session led by unique Melbourne artists Cat Rabbit and Isobel Knowles. Recycled materials and styling suggestions will be provided to help everyone create the perfect bush dance outfit, from bunyips to wattle trees and everything in between.
Prizes will be awarded for the best costume creations, so let your imagination run wild!
