The Avalon Workshop consists of two multi-purpose workshop spaces for hire and a creative studio for a 6-18 month lease. 

The Workshop is co-located at Avalon Golf Course (32 Old Barrenjoey Road, Avalon Beach NSW view map). 

The workshop spaces are suitable for creative workshops, classes, talks, pop-ups, reading groups, rehearsal space, contemporary crafts, activations, graphics/ tech classes and more.

The main workshop space is large, naturally ventilated and looks out to the golf course green. It has two wet area stations and the space can be configured in different ways, with easily movable furniture and flexible layouts to allow for a range of different workshop, talks or types of activations. The second workshop space has been configured for digital and multi-media classes alongside smaller programs or talks. The Studio is available through Council's Studios Program, offering affordable studio spaces through an EOI process. Throughout the Workshop space there is high speed internet wifi access.
