All-day art a chance to get stuck in

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS -

CRE­ATIV­ITY is set to flow thanks to an all-day art re­treat at Har­vey Dis­trict Cre­ative Arts Cen­tre on Fe­bru­ary 16.

From 10am right through to 9pm, mem­bers of the cen­tre and the wider com­mu­nity are in­vited to spend an en­tire day or just a few hours work­ing on their projects at a No Sleep Re­treat.

Cen­tre pres­i­dent Lynne Har­lond said the day was not just for mem­bers but those in the com­mu­nity who could be cu­ri­ous about ac­tiv­i­ties at the cen­tre.

“We’re hop­ing that it will al­low other peo­ple to come in, see what we’re all about, en­joy the day, stay for as long or as lit­tle as they like and hope­fully then if it works for them, they might come back,” she said.

Mem­bers were asked to bring their own craft sup­plies, which could be in any me­dia in­clud­ing scrap-book­ing, patch­work, card­mak­ing, knit­ting, cro­chet, dress­mak­ing, needle­work or crossstitch.

At­ten­dees are also asked to pro­vide their own snacks, lunch or din­ner.

Cen­tre ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee mem­ber Lo­rina Fer­gu­son said the event would give peo­ple ex­tra time to get started or to work on their projects.

“Hav­ing that ex­tra time is a great op­por­tu­nity to get those projects un­der way and some­times that’s the boost you need,” she said.

“It also had a bit of a fac­tor in that we were be­ing cheeky in stay­ing late.”

Ms Har­lond said peo­ple could come at any time which was con­ve­nient for those who worked.

The event costs $2 for mem­bers or $5 for vis­i­tors, with free tea and cof­fee. Email or ring 0418 941 842 for more in­for­ma­tion.
