Escape the ordinary, immerse yourself in creativity, hand-make something unique and embrace a new skill at Woodfordia’s Artisan Camp.

Leading up to the annual Planting festival, Woodfordia’s Artisan Camp is an organic gathering of artists, artisans and other creative folk hosting immersive masterclasses. courses range from two – six days and are all presented at beautiful Woodfordia.

The classes, diverse, light-hearted, skill-building intensives, offer participants the opportunity to learn or hone silversmithing, woodcarving, songwriting, sustainable gardening, oil painting, natural skincare, cheese making, traditional Maori basket weaving and even improvised comedy among many others.

Each class culminates in the development of a creative product, artwork or performance on the last night of the camp. Participants and facilitators are invited to stay at Woodfordia for the duration of the masterclass series. Camping and catering packages are also available.

We've had a few queries about whether there will be an arts and crafts workshop programme at Bushtime - there sure will! Arts, crafts, language, making, moving - there's quite a bit on considering that this is #notafestival. Bookings will open when we release the programme in November and we hope that you'll love this gathering of artists and enthusiasts as much as we do! #bushtime #thisisqueensland #woodfordia #jinibaracountry ...

One of our favourite Woodford memories is seeing @electricfields_music belting out '2000 and Whatever' at the 2019 festival to a heaving Amphi. It has to have been one of the most joyful moments of recent years! Though their return, to Bushtime, will for a much, MUCH smaller crowd, we know it's going to be an absolutely epic and memorable show, with moments of breathtaking beauty and power onstage. Featuring the rare and beautiful voice of Zaachariaha Fielding - who often sings in his traditional languages of the Anangu people – and the brilliance of composer and producer Michael Ross, this co-writing duo have headlined large festivals throughout Australia, Asia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Europe. Australian shows include Splendour in the Grass, APRA, *Apple*, *Spotify *and *Vogue*’s 60th Anniversary, and playing live for the AFL Grand Final.

See the incredibly uplifting Electric Fields as part of your Bushtime week on December 27 on Jinibara Country! #bushtime #thisisqueensland #woodfordia

Call out for Guardians of Gkula for the October long weekend camping (Thurs 28 - Sunday 31 October)! Aquatic swim safety skills and first aid/CPR qualifications are essential. We are also looking for people who understand and can help promote our 'lake lore' as we wish to protect it and the folks enjoying it. Just 3 hours per day, it's a great way to lend a hand to Lake Gkula Camping.

@busbymarou are fast becoming a national Australian treasure - and it's been so long since we've had them at Woodfordia! Tom Busby (hailing from Queensland) and Jeremy Marou (from the beautiful Torres Strait Islands) have been playing music together for over a decade, since their initial music connection at a pub in Rockhampton.

One of Australia’s hardest working live bands, best known for their distinctly Australian storytelling and gifted musicianship, Busby Marou’s success includes millions of global streams, top 20 airplay and four ARIA charting albums. Onstage, a key element is the intertwining of vocal interplay of two lifelong mates. We can't wait to welcome Busby Marou back to Woodfordia, January 1st at Bushtime, Jinibara Country!
