The Workshoppery
39 Barkly St, Bakery Hill Victoria 3350, Australia

The Workshoppery is located at Barkly Square, Ballarat East. The Barkly Square hub has been a place of learning since 1862 and is now led by BGT Jobs and Training Ballarat.

Tegan Crosbie, local Ballarat artist moved her micro business into a small room in the Barkly Square facility in 2023, and has subsequently transformed the room into an art studio and tiny retail store. From this intimate and light-filled mid-century space Tegan runs a range of art and craft workshops including collage, zine making and painting.

The Workshoppery is filled to the brim with colour, collections of Tegan’s retro inspired paintings and collages and pot plants that soak up the morning sun that floods the cozy space.

This joyous and creative studio is also the home of Fontella the zine machine, a zine distro with a difference, the vintage vending machine affectionately named Fontella is located in the adjacent café.

Parking off Princes Street South, then follow the ramp up to the courtyard. Some parking is also available in Barkly Street, enter via the ramp between the two main buildings and follow through into the courtyard. The Workshoppery is accessed from the courtyard adjacent to the cafe.
