Ever wondered what it's like inside an artist's mind?

This exhibition is the culmination of six weeks of "Creative Alchemy" workshops led by sculptor Gunnel Watkins.

A blend of emerging and established artists took part in the workshops, including Jila Baker, Anita Cashman, Rhonda McElnea, Celine Khaw, Tony Nesbitt, Silvia Pfruender, Marion Wait and Gunnel Watkins. The exhibition showcases not just the end products of these sessions, but the processes and stages of creation.

During the workshops, participants explored imagination and self-expression to begin to understand their own personal creative process.

An underpinning philosophy of the group is that we are all born creative, with a yearning to self-express our unique being in the world.

The group has finished the workshop series, but are continuing to meet weekly to work on their creative projects and delve deeper into understanding how art gets made.
