Avon Descent Festival FREE Art Workshops

  • Lilac Hill Park West Swan Road West Swan, WA, 6055 Australia (map)


Bring a zany or woolly sock to the Avon Descent activity tent and craft your own hobby horse to take home.

Local artists will be waiting with loads of wonderful craft materials to show you how to…

  • Braid a horse bridle and harness
  • Decorate a felt or sock hobby horse head
  • Attach your horse head to a stick (which can be painted or decorated with a wonderful selection of recycled materials to match)

Once your hobby horse is completed, we invite you to join us at the Habits of Horses Open Day Sunday 20 August at the Mundaring Sculpture Park (Jacoby Street Maundering) to join the great race, show off your creation and be in the running for a selection of prizes.


Join Maki to learn the craft of origami to create your very own river craft from paper. These beautiful little objects can be decorated or admired for their simplicity.


Join renowned textile artists and create flat felt inspired by the stunning natural flora and fauna along the river line. Heather will show you how to create your own felted item that can be transformed into a brooch, bookmark or simply an object to take home and love.

Sunday 6 August | 10am - 3pm | Suitable for all ages
