Fish Lane Studios is really excited to announce our new home and studio/exhibition space in the Brisbane Fish Lane Precinctan ……….. ‘alliance of Art, Food and Entertainment’ ……… in the heart of Brisbane South Bank – bound by Grey Street along the Brisbane River and Edmondstone Street, which boarders on the wonderful eclectic suburb of West End.

Fish Lane Studios has a diverse network of Artists and friends internationally and locally from Queensland and Interstate. We are currently putting together a showcase for each month ….. solo and group Exhibitions, culminating the year with a ‘Christmas Party Exhibition’ of Works from all our Artists involved over the year!  If you are keen to know more about this selection of Artists – contact us from the CONTACT on the Main Menu above.

But 1st join us and book your Workshop/s of choice above!

This first series of ‘Experimental Workshops’ are for Beginners ……….to set you up with an understanding of various new Substrates and Papers available on the Market primarily initially for Watercolour Work as this is easy for you to experiment with at home.

The Techniques that Wyn will teach during the ‘Last Week’ of Each Month – will be adaptable for you to use even with other mediums and we will gradually introduce you to these different concepts and approaches as you feel good with your brushes and find your favourite papers ?!!

The plan is to understand the basics of drawing – landscapes and figure work – composition and style – we will discuss these as part of each class and you will be welcome to make requests relating to your favourite subjects – be they abstraction, hyper realism, still life drawing etc…….

Workshops – Materials to bring |

For occasional Workshops – if we are experimenting with different substrates such as aqua boards or different thicknesses and styles of paper – these will be available for purchase on the day at a discount price!
