Dec 2022Community, Stories

Hello all good people of Kalbarri and a very warm welcome to December 2022. This is traditionally a very busy time for the club, and November was no different. On Wednesday 28th October was our monthly painting challenge. This months works shop was entitled – Land Scapes. This was another successful challenge with some wonderful and creative works developed.

On the 2nd November was our monthly Yarn Club. For more than just a good yarn, (although there are plenty of those as well) this monthly event is to encourage and develop all crafts based on yarn. Come on down for a fun and creative day. On the 7th November, the club commenced getting into the Christmas spirit with a workshop on reindeer making. The basis of these were corks. Check out below some of the amazing creations by club members. On the 9th November the club hosted St John Ambulance with some first aid training. As you are aware, first aid is such an important part of a small community, and the Kalbarri Arts & Crafts group would sincerely like to thank St Johns (Nick) for coming to our club and refreshing first aid knowledge to our members, and sharing some morning tea.

On Wednesday 16th November we commenced our long awaited Turkish lamp making workshops. Due to the number of members participating in this course, it was broken down into three separate workshops. Check out some of the wonderful works being created on the days.

Upcoming events for December:
• Silver ring making workshop on 28th November. This workshop will be conducted by a Geraldton Artist – Tracey
• Painting Challenge (Silhouette) – with Crissy G on 30th November.
• Yarn Club on 7th December.
• On 19th December is a UFO day – come down to complete unfinished projects in time for Christmas, and receive some great rewards (bribes!!!) for your efforts in a fun and entertaining environment.
