Drawing, Collage and Painting Workshops

Tuesday 16, 23, & 30 April and 7 & 14 May  2024 10:00 AM

Join artist Alma Tooke as she guides you through a series of drawing, collage and painting classes hosted by Duldig Studio

These inspiring morning workshops full of art, shared passions and coffee are designed for both beginners and the more experienced. Classes can be enjoyed individually but they are best experienced as a series in which you can build up your skills.

Each session will explore different techniques and aspects of drawing, collage and painting with opportunities to draw from life models (clothed).

The first session will include a tour of The Duldig Studio Museum and Sculpture Garden – the former home and studio of renowned sculptor Karl Duldig and inventor and artist Slawa Horowitz-Duldig.

Classes are limited to a maximum of 10 participants.

Early Bird Discount: If you book before 5:00PM on 14 April you are eligible for an exclusive discounted price reducing the admission to $50 per session.

Mothers’ Day at Duldig Studio 

Sunday 12 May 10:30 AM and 2:30PM

Treat mum to a special Viennese morning or afternoon tea in the studio gallery where you can explore our current exhibition and tour our heritage rooms, artists’ studio and sculpture garden.

Tours on Mother’s Day will particularly focus on Slawa Horowitz-Duldig – mother, artist, designer, teacher and inventor of the modern foldable umbrella. Visitors can engage with Slawa’s story through works of art, photographs, domestic settings and archival material.

Adults A$25.00, Children under 15 $15.00

Design Book Club in conjunction with Melbourne Art Library – ONLINE

Tuesday 30 April, 28 May, 25 June  7:30-9:00 PM AEST

Duldig Studio and Melbourne Art Library (MAL) have partnered to deliver a facilitated book club exploring the broad topic of design.

The Book Club will run for three online evening sessions  with the final, fourth Book Club meeting taking place face-to-face at the Duldig Studio.

Two weeks before each session participants will be sent three articles based on a design focused topic. The Book Club will then be facilitated by the expert librarians at MAL encouraging participants to discuss the themes within the articles.

It will be a wonderful, inspiring and fun program that you can enjoy from home – encouraging you to reflect and discuss with others the impact of design.

The final fourth session will be held in the Duldig Studio on a date to be decided by the club.

Participants can book individual sessions but to create the best club experience we encourage you to book the series.

Cost $15.00 per session

Launch of ‘Slawa Horowitz-Duldig – Modernist Art and Design’ 

Sunday 26 May 2:00 PM

Join Dr Alison Inglis AM, book contributors and guests at the Duldig Studio museum and sculpture garden for the public launch of the book, Slawa Horowitz-Duldig, Modernist Art and Design focused on this talented émigré artist, designer, teacher and wife of sculptor Karl Duldig.

Through a panel discussion, hear from award winning designers, Klarissa Pfisterer and Hamish Freeman (Pfisterer +Freeman) about the process of design and working with the art and archives of a house museum established by Slawa and her daughter, Eva de Jong-Duldig.

One of a number of émigré artists who contributed to the dissemination of modernist principles in Australia, Slawa is rightly celebrated for her design of the modern foldable umbrella, but her sculpture and painting on display at the Studio demonstrate a significant talent, cut short by the vagaries of war. This informative and beautifully designed book pays tribute to this modern woman and her achievements, both in Australia and Europe.

Tea and coffee included.
