Workshops on the Rock

At Large Workshops

Workshops on the Rock promotes and creates educational opportunities in our community. Each Spring, we publish an Annual brochure with an exciting array of arts-based ‘At Large‘ workshops facilitated by artists and instructors in studios throughout Salt Spring Island. As we relaunch our online presence, ‘At Large’ Workshops are posted here: www.workshopsontherock.com

In House Workshops

We also offer ‘In House‘ workshops that take place in historic Mahon Hall in the heart of Ganges. Workshops vary from one-time to multi-week sessions and are offered in a wide array of creative mediums and themes. Many workshops are geared for children and youth, while others are provide professional development for artists.
