If you have creative skills and are interested in becoming involved in a group, membership could be for you.

SSAC Memberships are open to all but are not workshops, so if you have existing skills and want to work in a group environment, access new skills and get involved in the Centre, please consider becoming a member of one of our creative groups.

If you want to pick up skills before joining as a member, please consider one of our workshops, or contact us about trying out with a group on 9791 1256
