Welcome to Castlemaine Community House!
Castlemaine Community House is a welcoming place, bringing people together to connect and strengthen our community.
Our autumn program is now available. Pick up a copy from the Community House or the library. We’ve got two new courses, to teach you drawing and ways to use sound for healing and stress relief.
There are new workshops, too: using and maintaining your chainsaw, looking after chooks, and making your own skin and hair care products. Details of our choirs and other activities and courses are also in the printed program.
You can download a pdf copy of our autumn program here.
If you want to be sure you are only using toxin-free skincare products, why not learn how to make your own? You’ll save money too. In our workshop, you will make products like lip balm, moisturiser and body scrubs – all to take home! More details of this workshop on Saturday 2 May are here.
Get started or improve your drawing with Jason Jones. There will be 10 sessions commencing 22 April. When you book, you will be told what materials you need. Book Now! More information
Denise Davis is running sessions to teach you to use your voice and other instruments to discover the healing power of sound. There will be four evening sessions, starting on 5 May. Details.
We’ll be back at the Town Hall in Frederick Street with our usual Tuesday lunch of two delicious courses. Join the queue at 12.30pm. All are welcome; it’s a great chance to meet other community members. Something to look forward to on 14 April!
What a great Castlemaine State Festival we all had, with appearances from our choirs in the streets, outside the Theatre, on the station at 6am, and of course in the wonderful Gurrong concert with Archie Roach. Now the Festival is over, James Rigby and Jane Thompson are taking a well-earned holiday. That means all change at a couple of our choirs! Peace Choir will have the outstanding Kavisha Mazzella (right) leading them throughout April, and the Chat-Warblers will be singing with Fay White.
