Remote Social Local Workshops Launch

“Remote – Social – Local” Community Workshops Launch!

Camperdown and District Community House is thrilled to announce the launch of our new Remote Social Local workshops program that celebrates local knowledge and connects community in Covid-safe ways!

This year has brought many changes to how we experience community and connect with one another.

Since the first Covid-19 ‘lockdown’ we have been working hard behind the scenes to adapt to restrictions and health guidance to develop new methods to bring meaningful content and engagement opportunities to our community. “Remote – Social – Local Community Workshops” is one of these new methods and we can’t wait for everyone to get involved.

This new workshop program is partly funded by the CIRCLE Effect project and supported by the Corangamite Shire Recovery team and CASI project, and Angela Preiss Virtual Assistant Services.

We have teamed up with the incredible Kylie Treble from The Place of Wonder, based in Port Campbell, to kick off this program with a bang.

We will be running two workshops with Kylie in November to launch the “Remote – Social – Local” workshop program, fresh cheese and sourdough making.


Registrations for the Fresh Cheese Making workshop are OPEN NOW and closing on the 10th November. Register via our website or email us for more information.

See more information and the promotion video for this workshop down below!

‘Making Sourdough’ registration will open soon.

This series will be followed by another set of two workshop with Kylie early in 2021 that will cover Fermentation and Fresh Pasta. There will be others to come in 2021 with Kylie, so make sure you connect with our social media and mailing list to stay in touch with new developments next year.


The “Remote – Social – Local” workshop program will also be offering art and art therapy workshops with local artists, and a diversity of workshop content with various local businesses and community members.

This program aims to connect, share, learn, and celebrate local talent and knowledge, and to support our local business and economy during these trying times.

All workshops in this current series will be free. All materials/ingredients required to complete the workshops will be provided in free workshop kits to Corangamite residents who register.

Registrations much be processed through our new workshop website, launching alongside this new program.

Terms and conditions do apply, please see our website for more information.

We can provide IT and technical support prior to the workshop if you have not used Zoom or are unfamiliar with the processes around engaging with content online. This must be arranged during the registration period by emailing or calling us on 55931403.

How does it work? Here are the steps to ‘attend’ our “Remote – Social – Local Community Workshops”:

  1. Register for the workshop on our website
  2. Once registered, you will be provided with a Workshop Kit which will include the instructions and materials/ingredients you need to complete the workshop. You must contact us to arrange a time to collect your Kit from Community House. All pick-ups will be contactless. You will also be sent an email with a link to the video recording of the workshop and a link to the final Live Zoom Wrap Up session.
  3. You can request a one on one test session and tech support which will be provided over the phone to help you to setup Zoom before starting the workshop.
  4. There will be one week to complete the workshop following the video and instructions provided. Please note any questions you have along the way and take photos of your progress to share with the group during the live zoom wrap up session.
  5. Live Wrap Up Session via Zoom (using link provided upon registration) where we will meet with the workshop facilitator and we can share our experiences completing the workshop, ask the facilitator any questions that have come up along the way.


This new workshop delivery model has been designed to try and capture a sense of what it was like to attend workshops pre-COVID19, the shared experience, fun and fellowship that is created by attending events like this, in a COVID-safe way following all current health advice and direction.

Welcome to the new “Remote – Social – Local Community Workshops” program, we hope you can join us and enjoy! Visit for more information or to register!


Be sure to follow us on Facebook and join our mailing list to keep up to date for up coming workshops!


We will begin with ‘Fresh Cheese Making’ with Kylie Treble from The Place of Wonder:

Learn new techniques and explore the diversity of a few simple and accessible ingredients. All that you need is a saucepan, a spoon, a colander, and a cook-top. Heating milk changes its texture and properties, adding an acid brings on the transformation magic. Make your own labne, ricotta, and marscapone.

Registration for this workshop is open from 16/10/20 to 10/11/20
Workshop Kit pickup from Community House on Tuesday 10th of November
Week to complete workshop: 10th – 17th November 2020
Live Zoom Wrap Up Session: Tuesday 24th November 2020

You will receive emails that includes your ‘how to participate’ guide, recipes, and ingredient list when you register: REGISTER HERE


*We encourage anyone from surrounding districts to register for video access, however to be eligible to receive the workshop kits and zoom follow-up sessions you must be a resident of the Corangamite Shire, Victoria, Australia. This is a local initiative to support community local to Camperdown & environs, and funding support specifies this caveat. Registration numbers may be limited  due to workshop lots available and/or love Zoom wrap up session caps. If these limits are reached any additional registrations received will be placed on a waiting list for when the workshop is next offered.
