Creative Catch-ups yellow (1)

Creative Catch-ups: last Friday of every month*
11am-12pm / $2 koha

*Except December! Our last Creative Catch-up for 2023 will be Friday 15 December. 

Calling all creatives, artists and crafters! On the last Friday of each month, we invite you to have a cuppa, work on your creative projects, or simply chat and connect with like-minded people at Oxford Gallery.

There are many creative people in our community and as artists we understand the importance of getting together to talk about our projects, our successes and our struggles! Painters, spinners, weavers, potters, sewists, photographers – or even not-sure-yets -all are welcome.

We meet on the last Friday of every month at the gallery, from 11-12, but if you wish to stay longer you’re welcome to. Tea and coffee is available and, if you can, a $2 koha towards the gallery’s running costs is appreciated. No registration required.

THIS MONTH: Friday 15 December. Just for fun, let’s make art to gift each other.
