Begin­ners make mo­saic ‘mas­ter­pieces’

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS -

MORE than 20 Shire of Har­vey res­i­dents learnt the art of mo­saics at the Yar­loop Com­mu­nity Re­source Cen­tre last week as part of the third Bush­fire Re­cov­ery Art project work­shop.

On Novem­ber 26 and Novem­ber 2, 24 at­ten­dees were taught mo­saics by Brunswick artist Sharon Reeves and they com­pleted a work to take home.

Bush­fire re­cov­ery of­fi­cer Ma­ree El­lis said the par­tic­i­pants en­joyed the work­shops.

“Ev­ery­one had a won­der­ful time putting to­gether their cre­ative mas­ter­pieces in a friendly and sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment,” she said. “It is an­tic­i­pated that more art work­shops will be held at the cen­tre in the fu­ture.”

Par­tic­i­pants came up with their own de­signs, some cre­at­ing house num­ber plaques while oth­ers made de­signs with sheep, flow­ers, dragon flies, or trees.

On Fri­day, Novem­ber 3, sculp­ture work­shops which will run for three ses­sions at the Yar­loop Com­mu­nity Re­source Cen­tre, were also started.

Par­tic­i­pants from each of the work­shops, in­clud­ing the paint­ing and tex­tile work­shops pre­vi­ously, have been in­vited to dis­play their work at Bush­fire Re­cov­ery and Re­growth Art Ex­hi­bi­tion.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will be held at the Har­vey Re­cre­ation and Cul­tural Cen­tre from Jan­uary 6 to 14 next year.

It is an­tic­i­pated that more art work­shops will be held at the cen­tre in the fu­ture – Ma­ree El­lis
