Education

Sturt maintains an extensive annual education program that offers opportunities for people of all ages and skill levels to engage in meaningful development of their creative and technical abilities in a wide range of art and craft mediums.

We offer specialist woodworking courses over extended periods of 1, 2, 4 or 10 weeks as well as our flagship 1-year full-time course in fine furniture making and design that has produced some of the finest woodworkers and furniture makers now working in Australia.  We also offer weekend courses throughout the year in a variety of mediums, an annual residential Winter and Summer School, weekly term classes and special 1-day classes for absolute beginners to have a go at a new skill or craft.

Sturt brings the best possible artists and teachers to work in our studios and deliver our education programs, they come from all parts of Australia and sometimes from overseas as part of our residency program.
