22-26 April, 2025

Wanaka Autumn Art School 

There will be a range of classes that will bring our tutors to you ready for a creative week. This is a great opportunity to step off the world to learn new skills and create something unique.

These are small intimate classes with skilled tutors, set within the dramatic Central Otago landscape. The classes are designed to give participants chances to shine. Beginners and experienced students welcomed. There are many opportunities to meet new friends, socialise as well as learn about the different tutors.


Information will be available on the website from December and enrolments will open in the first week of January 2025.  We encourage you to enrol early as classes fill quickly.

We are using an electronic booking system for enrolment: the link will be on our website. When you enter your details please ensure that your email is correct so that you can receive updates and important information.

Confirmation of enrolment will be sent out shortly after registration.

We hope to see you here

All classes, unless indicated otherwise, will run from Monday to Friday with registration from 8.30am on the first day. Normal hours are 9.30am to 4.30pm although these are flexible according to class activities.

A social hour will be held at the end of classes each day – a chance to meet participants on other courses and hear from a number of our tutors discussing their work.


On Thursday evening there will be a Platter and Pinot social time at the College at a cost of $25. Bookings for this must be made prior to the school. Tickets can be bought as a separate event along with your class enrolment.  Friends are also very welcome.

A Mini-market will be held following classes on Wednesday. Both tutors and participants are invited to sell anything they produce themselves.


See ‘Course Details’ for fees which all include G.S.T. Please note that for some courses an extra charge will be required to cover materials, models, etc. Where these charges are not included in the brochure, they will be paid to the tutor during the course.


The organisers reserve the right to cancel classes if necessary. This will be decided by March 26th and fees will be refunded in full.

If students cancel before March 26th a refund of fees paid less an administration fee of $30 will be made. Refunds will not be given for cancellation after this date except in special circumstances. All applications for refunds must be made in writing.


Lunches at a reasonable price will be available on campus. Tea and coffee will be provided each day.


A wide variety of accommodation is available in Wanaka including several backpackers’ hostels, motor camps, lodges, B & Bs, private holiday houses, motels and hotels. Participants are to make their own arrangements, but if you require a list of facilities, please refer to


The status of each class will be regularly updated on this site. Please register early to avoid disappointment and facilitate planning.
