    Woods Street Arts Space is a flexible workshop and exhibition space in the Lohse and Woods Street shopping precinct in Laverton. The building, a former post office which up until April 2012 had been sitting empty, comprises a street level shopfront on a corner site not far from Laverton Train Station. 

    The building is currently leased on a 3 x 3 year term and we are currently in the second renewal of this cycle. Woods Street with its large bank of windows provides a useful space for arts and design based exhibition and display material.  The ground floor area is suited for a gallery and workshop space.  The space is only to be used for arts based activities. The space is provided free of charge but we reserve the right to charge a deposit bond.
