Explore the smART pods

 Numero Painto

Join together with your friends to create a mega colour by numbers challenge!  Choose from five different colour by number templates. Once you have completed your creation get a snap with our giant crayon. Make sure you tag @eastland in your photos!

 Colour Cycle  

We’ve combined art and mechanics to create art pieces through a deconstructed bike! Spin the wheel or turn the pedals of the bike to create bright geometric art. Invented by a mathematician, the spirograph creates elaborate spirals and geometric drawings you can try in an array of bright colours!


 Stringy Thingy  
Stringy Thingy

With a modern twist on the ancient artform of weaving, create art by winding bright coloured yarn around the pegs to create an amazing community art piece, full of colour, style and individuality! Explore shapes, colours and extend your imagination with geometric animals, structures and more - let your imagination run wild! 


 Secret Scribble  
Secret Scribble

With a mix of art and technology, create your own unique drawing using our magical invisible pens, then shine a special light on your artwork to see it come to life before your eyes!




smART Workshops

Book in for our smART workshops, specially designed for primary school aged children, where they can create their own flippy art book and learn how animations were originally created. Our artist friends will then teach children to get crafty and learn how to weave their very own custom dream catcher from string, beads and extra decorations that you can take home. At the end of the workshops there will be time to explore all the other smART pods 

Workshops run every 30 minutes from Saturday to Wednesday, 11am - 4pm, and Thursday and Friday, 11am - 6pm

Workshops are free,  bookings are essential!

Children must be 5 years and above.
