On Thursday night last week, the official opening of ‘The Workshop’ took place in Ryall Street, Canowindra. This project by Jo and Eugene Marais has been a year in the making, after acquiring the old Comprinting building in December last year, followed by a soft opening in May.
The building has undergone a complete transformation with new walls, new flooring, light spaces and outside garden work at the back of the building. Workshops will be conducted with works in painting, fabric, and clay there will also be Pilates classes on offer.
People can also come along on the Open Day’s, with their own materials and just use the space. Jo has been connected with Canowindra Public School as an artist in residence for the past 12 months.
Around 50 locals attended the evening which gave an insight of what is to come for those wanting to express themselves and have always been wondering how and where to do this.
