Join a free creative workshop during May and June and have your work included in the next Caloundra Regional Gallery exhibition, Passing Through: Project Another Country by renowned Filipino-Australian artists Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan.

The gallery and Sunshine Coast Libraries will host the free workshops titled Artwork in a box: Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan, a QUT Art Museum touring education program.

Inspired by the work of the Aquilizans, both children and adults can make their own cardboard boat which can then be displayed in the gallery during the exhibition or taken home to keep.

There’s no need to book. The workshops are free-flowing, inclusive for all ages and all materials are supplied.
