At Easter, Marion Gaemers will be presenting a workshop making sculpture from beach –rope and other recycled materials. There will be some workshops held during the school holidays to suit young and older participants. The full programme of workshops will be available after 15th March.
A new event will be a Fibre and Textile Art Market, to be held at Mission Arts on the weekend of the 12th and 13th May. Stall spaces will be available for artists and craft workers to display and sell their work, and there will be demonstrations of various crafts during the day.
