What an incredible achievement for the Peak Hill Leisure Centre to be hosting the Peak Hill’s 50th Annual Arts and Craft Exhibition on the June Long Weekend 9-11 June, 2023.
story supplied. April 2023.
The members and committee are presently looking through the memorabilia of old photos and family items made by members of the past, together with the newer trending arts and crafts to add to the 50th Exhibition.
Our members are currently making an anniversary patchwork wall hanging to mark the occasion. One of the members is making an embroidery panel of the Leisure Centre Building. Members are also busy making new items for the exhibition which will be on display and judged by People’s Choice on the long weekend. Demonstrators and workshops this year include felting, machine embroidered cushions, card making, weaving and spinning and an artist-in-residence. Devonshire teas will be served for morning and afternoon tea and delicious hot soups for lunch.
Several other venues will support this year’s anniversary weekend. The Carrington will feature several artists-in-residence on the lower floor level, with a fabulous display of mosaics and an environmental dyeing workshop using gum-leaves. The upper level of the building will host a Photography Exhibition by Peak Arts Connect Photography group and local photographers which will focus on Peak Hill Scenes, to help promote tourism in our region. (Please contact Judi if you would like to enter your photos in the exhibition).
The Peak Hill Country Crafts will showcase many arts and crafts items which are hand-designed, hand-made and hand-baked by local community members. Painting workshops using expressive acrylics exploring flora/fauna will be available to on both days of the exhibition.
Other venues will also be open over the weekend and advertised on our FB page: Peak Hill Leisure Centre Arts and Craft leading up to the Exhibition.
