Message from Emmie on 23rd March 2020:

Wild Learning is closed for a few days while we work through how to comply with the new regulations around community protection and social distancing.

This means no classes, groups, or events will run this week - including no kids art and no choir.

We are working overtime to launch Wild Learning Live & Online so we can bring you classes in internet based formats plus take home kits and live online events.

This is strange time for all of us and we are working hard to adapt and I will update this page and our social media with news as soon and as often as I am able to.

Thanks for your ongoing support for Wild Learning!

Stay well, look after each other... and don't forget to wash your hands,


The Wild Learning creative space @

111 Wollombi Rd Cessnock


What is Wild Learning?

It's a place where local people teach classes and run activities!
We like to think of it as the best place to come and join a learning community -  and a brilliant place to make teaching more fun and more rewarding.


We are currently home to ten teaching artists who offer classes and special event workshops in art, sewing, music, singing, zumba, yoga, meditation and more!

Wild Learning is run by Emmie Hallett


We have a large hall space, which is set up for creative classes around the big art table and movement classes in the open space.

We also have a smaller gallery room which is used for private lessons and small group classes - and a side studio for meetings and smaller classes.

We have a small kitchenette for refreshments and a toilet


In 2020 are working on adding more facilities to help build our community - including a little community garden.

There are parking spaces behind the building, access via Campbell street and plenty of street parking near by.


Please be aware that as we are next to a school, you will need to allow extra time to find a parking spot if you arrive during school drop off or pick up times.

When you arrive:

Please enter via the door on the Campbell st side of the hall, near the butterfly wall painting. There are two steps to get into the building. 

Please sign the book on the welcome desk every time you enter the building - and then see your teaching artist or event host to fix up any payment and get settled in for your class!

Accessibility & inclusion:

We welcome all people to participate in Wild Learning activities. 

We are working towards making the space more accessible.  We currently have stairless entry to the building via the roller door which can be opened when ever you require access - it's not a beautiful entry, we are aware of this and are looking at options to improve.
Inside the building there are no stairs.

Our bathroom is a work in progress, it is open for use and suitable for people who are ambulant. We are looking at how to make it a fully accessible bathroom in the future.


We warmly welcome people with different learning abilities and support needs and encourage you to talk to use when you enroll about how we can make your time at Wild Learning positive and enjoyable.
