Celebrate the last day of the Easter holidays with a Great Outdoors-themed family day! Take part in workshops exploring the patterns in nature, create your own wooden badge, practise mindfulness and listen to Canadian folklore tales.


Transforming Tents: 10am-5pm

Can you believe that David Milne lived in a tent in the wilderness to make his paintings? Come together to decorate our tents in the Gallery grounds, and turn them into comfortable homes. You might end up wanting to live in one!

Take a Mindful Moment: 10am-5pm

Drop-in to our mindful space at any time during the day. Stay for as short or as long as a time as you like, and relax with support from local yogi Michele Misgalla.

Pattern Hunt: 10am-5pm

Join Wild Life Drawing for a drop-in drawing session, and create patterns inspired by nature. You can collect a clipboard to roam around the grounds with or stay to work from a still life and get some top tips about how to draw from nature.

Make a Memento: 11am-5pm

Remember your day in nature by hand-painting a Milne-style design on to a wooden badge.

Treetopia: 10am-5pm

What is your favourite kind of tree? Using recyclable materials, make your favourite tree and add it to a fantastical forest that will grow throughout the day.


Tales from Canada: 11-11.45am, 12-12.45pm, 2.30-3.15pm, & 3.30-4.15pm

Listen to Canadian folktales about the adventures of pioneers, animals, and mystical creatures in the wild Canadian landscape.
