The Norman Lindsay Art Studio is in urgent need of major repairs. We need to raise $160,000 to commence long overdue work on one of the nation’s most historically significant creative spaces. It’s in this studio that Norman created many of his most beloved works, including the classic children’s book, The Magic Pudding.

  • Repair external walls to prevent pest intrusion
  • Upgrade air-conditioning and install humidity control
