20 Dec Traditional Arts Fair
Where else would you get to see how to make bamboo fishing rods, sauerkraut, beeswax wraps or how to twist garden trimmings into delightful objects all in one day? At our second Traditional Arts fair of course!
A day of fun and with the continual demonstrations of sock making, weaving, knitting. as well as lacemaking certainly enhanced the day. Walking into the Garden room and viewing the gorgeous collection of half aprons along with amazing amount of locally made produce as well as second hand books was a treat.
The children’s activities of making clay models was a real hit, not forgetting the head garlands made a special moment for many children.
A huge thankyou to all of our volunteers who put many hours into making this day so special. To those who made the cakes and slices to sell, to those who provided service to the visitors, to our wonderful tour guides, to the best BBQ sellers, to those who worked to prepare the garden, to those who sold raffle tickets we send out the biggest thankyou. It could never have happened without your support. Thanks also to our supporters, Shedshaker brewery, Sprout Bakery and our wonderful demonstrators who really made the day.
