Discover the ships and boats in the Bendigo Gallery collection.
After a nautical discussion sail into the Gallery’s art space and design a ship of your own. Will your ship have a mast, some oars, or a flying flag? Using a wide range of papers, sticks, pastels and pens children will have fun creating their own colourful boat themed collage.
