Who We Are

Glyde-In Community Learning Centre, 42 Glyde Street, East Fremantle, offers courses, talks and activities that we hope will enrich your enjoyment and knowledge, and foster a healthy community life.

We aim to be a source of learning that doesn't cost the earth, that doesn't need prior knowledge or qualifications, and doesn't ask for a huge commitment of your time. Our courses are non-competitive and informal, including art and craft classes, language classes and computer classes. Tutors are from all walks of life, and we welcome more! Glyde-In is committed to the inclusion and recognition of all members. The premises are wheelchair accessible. The Centre is run by a volunteer Management Committee, and four part-time staff members. We generate much of our funding through membership and course fees, and are also supported greatly by the Town of East Fremantle, who provides our building and its maintenance, and very substantial funding.

Glyde-In gratefully acknowledges the support of staff and councillors of East Fremantle Council.

Enrolments for Term 2 commence on Wednesday 27 April (8.30am in person, 9am online) and are ongoing throughout the term, spaces permitting. The requirement for proof of vaccination and mandatory sign-in have been lifted at Glyde-In for the present. However, we do encourage everyone to keep their vaccinations up to date, lodge them with the office (if not already done) and to wear a mask where appropriate or if preferred.

Mostly hidden beneath the waves, our marine plants include an impressive range of colours, shapes and textures. In addition to their important ecological role, marine plants have incredible potential for human use, either as food directly or in a range of industrial and agricultural processes, including as a stock feed supplement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. John, curator of the Western Australian Herbarium and a seaweed taxonomist explains.

Bridget will share stories behind her paintings as well as a sneak peek into the pages of her plein air sketchbooks.

A comedy/drama by Lis Hoffmann and Phil Jeng Kane. Freewheeling DJ Adam's life was a car crash. Literally. Now he's back from hospital with a brand new attitude. His only obstacles are a severe lack of money, his best mate who needs to unpack his attitude to love, his ex-girlfriend who's hell bent on cracking the code that is Adam ...and then there's Juanita, the wily, obsessive landlady. But nothing is as it seems in sight of the sea, there's always an undertow taking you places you don't expect. This funny and moving comedy/drama shows us there are times in life where we need to make changes - or change will be forced upon us. Book by 24 June.

Following Captain James Stirling's over-exaggerated ideas of the potential productivity of the coastal plain around Perth; the first pioneers soon discovered that the extent of fertile agricultural land around the Swan and Canning rivers was miniscule. It was therefore a matter of considerable urgency to do some serious exploration in order to find productive land which could be used to feed the Swan River Colony. Richard will discuss some of the nineteenth century explorers who intrepidly roamed the arid interior of Western Australia, mapping and recording its unique features as they went, in the process making a significant contribution to our knowledge of the geography of Western Australia.

Ascher Fisch conducts Brahms and Beethoven. Brahms' stirring Variations on a Theme by Haydn effortlessly and joyfully blends together the clarity and purity of Haydn's Classical style with his own richly-textured orchestral sound. Short it may be, but Beethoven packs an astonishing amount of invention, technique and sheer imagination into his "Haydnesque" Symphony No. 8, which endlessly delights and surprises.
