Description of Venue: Inhabiting the historic coach house and horse stables which serviced the adjoining Eastern Station Hotel from 1862, Wolveschildren Art Space sprang to life in July 2013, and has quickly become a sought after exhibition space in Ballarat. Located within an older part of Ballarat and opposite the heritage bluestone railyards, the space lends itself to a grunge urban industrial style, though is not limited to this by any means.

Brainchild of artist Erin Bond Matheson and her partner, the artspace includes a range of inviting features, and is continuing to evolve.

The space features a main exhibiting space, with a smaller space suitable for both workshops/demonstrations and exhibitions. This smaller space is also ideal for meetings, with seating available on site. Lockable artist studios are also available for leasing, and include fan heating and artist wash up areas.

Servicing the exhibition and workshop/meetings areas is a basic kitchen which includes a mini fridge, microwave, kettle, double sink, glasses and some crockery.

There is also a retail area available to approved artists on a commission basis.

Types of events which are run/held: The venue is suitable for exhibitions, workshops, classes, demonstrations and meetings.
