SUCCESS! We have reached our target

WE HAve reached our crowdfunding target and can now start planning our future learning programs, thank you everyone for your support!

We will be transforming our school-yard into an outdoor learning space, initially working with five local schools and community-groups, all of whom will benefit greatly from ongoing access to arts and environmental programs. The space will be made available to the public evenings and weekends through a program of family and adult hear about future events you can join our mailing list here.


Workshops with schools & community groups

The outdoor learning space is now being built in collaboration with our community partners. We have started running workshops with Essendine and St Peters primary schools, in weave, knit, woodworking, print and mosaics; transforming waste materials (collected from local businesses) into beautiful furniture and planters.

A word from our Community Partners

“We’re looking forward to working closely with Kindred Studios; the arts and environmental workshops Kindred are developing will provide our students with invaluable skills and the opportunity to learn from professional artists.” Lisa Mafrica, Deputy Head Teacher at Essendine Primary School

“The development that Kindred Studios is planning will offer the people we work with a unique opportunity to access high quality arts and environmental programmes delivered by expert facilitators. We are lucky to have this amazing resource developing on our doorstep which will help our students express themselves in new ways and engage further with their community”.
