IT will be all hands on deck at the Myall Community Art and Craft Centre this Saturday for the group’s annual Open Day.
For months now, the Centre’s hundreds of members have been busy creating beautiful and interesting works of art, both practical and decorative.
“This will be a great opportunity for locals and visitors alike to view the many and varied activities that are on offer at the Centre,” Janette Coppock told News Of The Area.
The group first began over a quarter a century ago in a small makeshift hut.
Now it has over 250 members and a centre that has been purpose built to cater to all kinds of creative outlet for both men and women.
“There is sure to be something there to interest everyone,” Janette said.
“Groups include Art, Ceramics, Wood Crafts, Wood Turning, Spinning and Weaving, Lead Lighting, Decorative Art, Patchwork & Quilting, Picture Framing, Leatherwork, Print Making, Soft Crafts and Mosaics.”
The beauty of the Open Day is that visitors to the centre will get a hands on experience, seeing and learning what’s involved in the creative process.
“Many new people to our area have called in to visit the Craft Centre shop and have been surprised and amazed at the variety of activities available to members,” Janette said.
