Big few weeks for Bello Growers Market

Kaya Boom (centre, standing) will offer a free drumming workshop at Bellingen Grower’s Market on Saturday, 10 December.

THE Bellingen Growers Market is ending the year on a high note.

On Saturday, December 3 is the Growers bi-annual Artisan Market from 8am-1:30pm at the Bellingen Showgrounds.

“There will be 60 local artists and creators in attendance as well as our local weekly stallholders,” said Charlene,
Bellingen Growers Committee.

“Juicebox and the wonderful Sajie, both local music groups, will be providing the tunes.

“This is always a large event with an exceptional variety of stalls.

“Come get an early start or finish to holiday shopping,” Charlene said.

A week later, the Growers will welcome the invigorating and pounding beats of Kaya Boom, Bellingen’s drumming virtuoso and teacher, who will be conducting a free drumming workshop at Bellingen Grower’s Market on Saturday, 10 December.

Up to 100 drums, ranging from giant basses through to hand drums and tambourines, will be spread out under the trees at the Showground ready for people of all ages to try their hand tapping into the heartbeat of music.

Some experienced players from Kaya’s classes and group, Samba Soul, will be there to provide mentoring to newcomers.

“It’s a great expression of community unity, to come together and play as a group,” Charlene said.

Kaya’s workshop is presented as part of the Bellingen Grower’s Markets Community Engagement initiative, aiming to teach creative sustainability skills in the community.

Further workshops are planned for next year.
