With the opening of our new building, the Art Gallery of New South Wales is welcoming visitors to our expanded home. 

In this hands-on workshop, we ask you to imagine you’re hosting a celebration in your own home with an elaborate table setting inspired by artworks from the Art Gallery’s collection on display in the 20th-century galleries in our historic building, now known as the South Building. Design and decorate a celebratory bon-bon to welcome your guests and to conceal something special. 

Drop in anytime between 11am and 3.30pm. All materials and instruction are provided. Suitable for all ages.

The event is part of celebrations to mark the opening of the Art Gallery’s new building, known as the North Building, in December 2022.
