Duldig Studio showcases works of art by the European refugee and internationally acclaimed sculptor Karl Duldig (1902-1986) and his wife, the artist and inventor Slawa Duldig née Horowitz (1902-1975). In their former home, the sculptures, drawings, paintings and decorative arts tell the story of lucky escape and internment and their creative lives in Vienna, Singapore, Tatura and Melbourne.

Group Tours for 6 or more visitors are available every weekday. Advance booking is required. Tours are 90 minutes and include an introductory mini-documentary, refreshments, an opportunity to view our exhibition SLAWA: modernist art + design and explore the original house with its rooms of art, Artists' Studio and Sculpture Garden.
