Sturt Gallery and Studios

Sturt is Australia’s pioneering design centre and school for contemporary craft. Situated 100km south of Sydney in the Southern Highlands, we offer a wide range of courses and workshops for both adults and school-age students at all skill levels. More than a place of exceptional learning, Sturt plays an important role in the cultural and historic makeup of the region – attracting over 30,000 visitors every year to its exhibitions, events, contemporary design retail space, café and gardens.
Sturt Gallery & Studios has been driving the post-war studio crafts movement for nearly 80 years, and is recognised as being one of the most important models of its kind in Australia.
Today, Sturt offers a dynamic program that combines courses, residences, workshops, exhibitions, and Summer and Winter Schools – primarily in furniture, ceramics, textiles and jewellery.
Designed on a foundation of teaching principles, our activities complement the school programs of Frensham and Gib Gate and local arts events, and work to maintain the renowned profile we’ve established within the wider arts and design community.
