Home to a community of creative people who love art in all forms
Our Centre is the creative hub of Bribie Island. We have several workshop areas, including a well-equipped pottery that are used by about a dozen different art and craft groups and for regular workshops presented by visiting artists, a large exhibition space, and a large and attractive Gift Shop where members can exhibit and sell their work. We share our bushland site with the Bribie and District Woodcrafters and the Bribie Gem Club, and hold a joint Craft Market the last Sunday of each month.
Our Gift Shop offers unique, high-quality, hand-crafted goods for sale at very attractive prices. Art work available includes paintings, pottery, fabric work, glass work, wood work, jewelery and cards. If you are looking for a special gift for someone, or a painting for your home, do drop in and explore and enjoy the work of about 200 Bribie and district artists.
All BICAS members are eligible to their work in our Gift Shop for 25% commission, which helps support our volunteer-run Centre.
