Wel­come place to share craft skills

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE en­thu­si­asm of the women who are cre­at­ing jew­ellery and art and pass­ing on skills at the In­dige­nous Women’s Cen­tre at Eidsvold is in­fec­tious.

Last year their build­ing was drab and un­invit­ing but now it is an in­spi­ra­tional place where in­dige­nous women gather to en­joy each other’s com­pany, de­velop their skills and learn new ones.

“We have a dis­play room, a work room, com­put­ers and we’re go­ing to start some gar­dens as well,” ar- tist Is­may Law said.

“Next year we will have an open­ing and be­gin to of­fer our work for sale.

“We wel­come new women and are ex­cited about the fu­ture,” she said.
