There is a PDF document attached to all booking confirmations with a map. Mrs Trivett Place is a sharp left just before Fleet Street. It looks more like a driveway than a road. Keep walking up the hill, past Walyalup Cultural Centre and the public toilets. You will then see our little green building, number 15, tucked beneath the Roundhouse, and overlooking Bather's Beach and the J Shed. 

Access is also possible from the back steps behind the J Shed or the footpath behind the Roundhouse. It's a little tucked away and if in doubt, type in 'Workshop Freo' to Google Maps or call 0431774371 for some assistance!

18 November 2017 • Pencil Portraiture with Rachelle Dusting

This is a 3 hour course covering observation skills, different ways to use a pencil, and how to grid a photo. It is very practical and extremely useful. I enjoyed it thoroughly and so did my wife!
