The Official Opening of premises situated on Mortlock Terrace for the Arteyrea Workshops took place on the October 27th, 2002 and marked the last stage of the Civic Hall Redevelopment. The eight leadlight windows depicting sea themes which adorn the front of the building were the result of a project undertaken by local leadlight artists.
The building was originally the South Australian Railways Institute and was refurbished by the
Port Lincoln City Council as a community workshop space. The Arteyrea Workshop is home to many of the regions art and craft groups. A monthly craft fair is held at the premises on the third Sunday of every month.
