Artea - Studio & Cafe

ARTea is an open studio, cafe and creative space celebrating ART in all forms and for all ages.

We run parties, exhibitions, workshops, mother groups, afterschool, homeschool & holiday programs as well as an art market.

Stop in for creative time or a cup of boutique loose leaf tea in one of our quirky tea pots and indulge in one of our vegan, organic cupcakes, frozen yogurts and homemade delights.


Parties & Events

Birthdays

Artea is a great place for a kids party for budding artists. Professional artist Helen Pollard and Ed Robinson host the art parties.

The art activity is set up in workstations along the side, while the party table/high tea setting is in the middle of the space. The creative element of the parties goes for about 45 mins -1 hours, and then children can enjoy the party food together.

After the birthday cake, the children decorate a large mural as an extra special gift for the birthday child’s bedroom. This is followed by traditional party games such as musical statues and pass the parcel. At the end, children can receive an adorable handmade thank you bag, so that the creativity can continue at home.

During the party parents can relax with a freshly ground coffee or boutique loose-leaf tea by Tea Blossoms and organic cupcakes.

Other optional extras include hand painted invitations for the guests, hand designed organic birthday cake, face painting and food platters for adults.


Creative High Tea

For something a little different join us for our special 'Creative High Tea' to celebrate a birthday, baby or friendship.

Select from range of art activities, while we indulge you with some high tea classics. We've added our take on High Tea to include a delicious selection of gourmet savoury treats to compliment cups of Tea Blossoms loose-leaf tea. We also cater for dietary requirements and fussy tastes.

Adults $49 Children $29
