Food for Thought Adult Workshops

Food for Thought, an innovative partnership project between the Shire of Mundaring, Mundaring Arts Centre and local art organisations, has officially launched.

Residents are invited to share the experience as we explore how food shapes our culture, relationships and art.  Reserve your space now to join local artists for a range of exciting opportunities to learn new crafts and make food vessels. Workshops run from late March through to the start of May.
