What's on offer?

Tafta Inc presents a week-long retreat for artists, craftsperson and like minded individuals to come and create with tutors of their choice.

‘The Geelong FORUM has really been the most wonderful way to develop as a teacher - not only being a student and then understanding more of where the students come from, but also developing all those skills.... from kite making to felting to bead making and sublimation - almost everything has ended up in my classroom as part of the curriculum. And attending all those Geelong Forums has made me the teacher I am today with so much versatility in what I can do and offer’.”

Linda Gallus, Textiles teacher at Geelong College.  

The Geelong Fibre Forum has been running for over 15 years at the Geelong Grammar Campus, Corio.

The forum retreat runs Monday to Friday from 9am - 4pm  and Saturday morning Open Day 9-12pm.  

The forum offers  residential or non-residential options. The cost for non-residential includes lunches every day and tutor fees.

The cost for residential includes all accommodation (single or shared), meals from Sunday night through to Saturday breakfast, and tutor fees.
