The entrance to the Bower workshop is via Turner Street, which is at the rear of 107 Redfern Street and is almost opposite no. 25. You should find there a hand-painted sign “The Bower Woodworks”. If you do find the door locked, please do not hesitate to press the doorbell on the left-hand side of the garage door. Please note, the doors for the venue will be open from 5:30pm.

Transportation and Parking
Public transport would be the easiest way to get to the workshop space. The space is located very close to Redfern Train Station, a local transport hub.

The majority of the parking is 2-hour-timed (including some paid parking on Redfern St) though it clicks over to untimed at 8pm, a good option if you can find a park there before 6pm.
The untimed parking is available on Pitt St between Phillip and Wellington St. Turn right from Turner St and head down Pitt St two block, untimed parking is on your right.
