The Blender Studios has a new home at The District, Docklands! Offering free monthly gallery exhibitions, walking street art tours, and a sneak peek into the artists' work studio, this is a family friendly place to visit!

The name 'The Blender Studios' was coined by James Dodd in 2001, to describe the different artists, craftspeople and philosophies, that filled the original inner-city, 22-studio hub created by artist Adrian Doyle.

The new space, located upstairs in The District, welcomes guests into a open and bright gallery space, The Dark Horse Experiment, which hosts monthly exhibitions of contemporary and experimental works, performances, and installations of artists who may not get a chance to exhibit in a commercial space.

Behind the Dark Horse Experiment, wander through Blender and explore a maze of artists' work studios. The artists are often working, so you can have a conversation and find out more about their technique, medium, unique style, and buy some original pieces. The mediums vary from stencil and ink to recycled rubbish, sculpture and textiles.

During Summer months, enjoy free walking street art tours of the Docks, where you will enjoy live music, canapes, and a drink of choice, at a local restaurant, before embarking on a 1 hour leisurely tour of the gallery and studios, followed by discovery and story telling tour of mural and sculpture art around the area. Book in advance.
