WHAT IS THE GUILDS INN?
The Guild’s Inn is a miniature painting event weekend hosted by the Sydney Display Painters Guild. It will be a whole weekend dedicated to hobby activities, organised jam sessions, fun speed painting comps and social hangouts. The event will also host the brand new Guild’s Inn national painting competition, with entries to be submitted and judged over the weekend.
The Guild’s Inn is a not-for-profit event run by volunteers, focussed on the miniature painting community coming together. We are spread far and wide across Australia and have too few chances to meet, so the goal is to create a fun and worthwhile opportunity to connect with each other in person, share our work, talk about what we love, and enjoy the social side of miniature painting.
The 2023 Guild’s Inn will be held on July 29-30 at the regular Sydney Display Painters Guild meeting place in Artarmon in northern Sydney. It’s a completely private venue in a fully-equipped, comfortable office space, and we’ll have the whole place to ourselves. Anyone is welcome to attend for all or part of the fun, and we will do our best to create a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere for all our visitors.
We look forward to seeing you all at the inaugural Guild’s Inn!
