Our popular ‘Fireside Chats’ begin again on Sunday afternoons in June and continue throughout July. Tickets are $15 including afternoon tea.
Amongst the fascinating variety of speakers we have for you:
Sunday 2 June
Australian artist, writer and founder of Liberarte Education for seniors, Gabrielle Bates. (www.gabriellebates.com).
Gabrielle has recently undertaken an artist’s residency in Penang, Malaysia. There, she worked on experimental drawings and paintings based mainly on floorplans of heritage listed sites on the island, exploring the relationship between place, patterns and identity. Her exhibition ‘Snugglepot and Cuddlepie go feral’ influenced by May Gibbs’ characters, appeared last year. You can read more about Gabrielle on her website.
Sunday 23 June
Robert Clarke, Heritage Architect
Sunday 7 July
Paul Brunton, Emeritus Curator, New South Wales State Library

Join us in the house for a stimulating talk with question and answer sessions and demonstrations where applicable and then for afternoon tea. Tell your friends and book early as spaces are strictly limited for these sell-out events.
