Be creative, Be engaged, Be inspired


Hawthorn Community House offers a wide range of excellent classes, workshops and exercise programs. Our tutors are passionate and committed to delivering high quality programs to the wider community.


Our programs are suitable for everyone so, whether you are keen to learn a new language, join a book group, discover your inner artist, or keep yourself active, our programs are fun and affordable.


Most of our courses are ongoing during school terms but we also run one-off workshops and special events.

We focus on keeping members of our community connected, socially engaged and assist them to develop new passions and interests. 

We also offer a selection of our classes online, delivered using MS Teams and Telelink, so you can attend from the comfort of your own home. Find out more HERE

Our tutors and guest speakers are passionate about what they do.
