Description of Venue: Raiin connects creative people with a desire to indulge, explore or rediscover their artistic talents. Raiin offers art workshops, artist retreats and cultural experiences in an inspiring location.

Surrounded by nature, the Artist Studio space is located in Musk, 5 minutes from Daylesford. The tuscan garden surroundings with the private valley view capture artist's imaginations on arrival. During the warmer months activities are held outside amongst mature chestnut trees and the spring fed creek.

Experienced or emerging artists are encouraged to enjoy a few hours of art making together. Meeting new people, sharing lunch, feeling relaxed and becoming totally absorbed in the moment allows creativity to flow.

A local Daylesford artist once said, "Art and expressing oneself creatively is a necessity."

All workshops are held within the huge Artist Studio which is fully equipped with art easels, good lighting, kitchen and pot belly wood heating. Approx 8 metres wide x 17 metres in length the space accommodates larger groups as needed.

  • Life Drawing - Advanced and beginners

  • Costume Drawing

  • Still Life Drawing / Painting

  • Iconography / Egg Tempura Painting techniques

  • Painting - Advanced and Beginners
