Courtyard Workshops

APPLY NOW for 2020!

Courtyard Workshops

As part of the redevelopment and upgrades
to the Courtyard at Salamanca Arts Centre,
SAC is introducing a new type of space in 2019 :
the Courtyard Workshops.

The Courtyard Workshops aim
to engage the community and visitors to SAC
with the arts making, creating and design process.

Visitors to SAC will be able to see and engage with Courtyard Workshop Artists working on-site, demonstrating their skills in their particular medium and showcasing their talents.

Each Courtyard Workshop will focus on a specific single Arts Discipline (e.g. printmaking, jewellery, ceramics, textile) with all Artists associated with each Courtyard Workshop working within the same Arts Discipline.


The Courtyard Workshops are located on the Ground Floor of the Willis and Morrison Buildings, in Spaces adjacent to the Courtyard, providing the highest visibility and creating a centralised hub of making, creating and design.

Several Spaces have been re-zoned from Arts Retail to Courtyard Workshop.

The Courtyard Workshop Spaces include:

  • Space 011 
  • Space 012 
  • Space 017 
  • Space 022
  • Space 024
