En­twined spreads its vines

The Advocate (Perth) - - FRONT PAGE - Lisa Thomas

EN­TWINED in the Val­ley will re­turn this year with the big­gest and most di­verse itin­er­ary yet.

The four-day fes­ti­val will in­clude food, wine and art master classes – as well as feasts and long lunches made with lo­cal pro­duce.

City of Swan events co­or­di­na­tor Sascha Stone said 2018 had the best lineup of events yet.

“The 2018 En­twined in the Val­ley has even more on of­fer than the fan­tas­tic 2017 event,” she said.

“Our new art trail Sculp­tures in the Val­ley will make an ex­cit­ing ad­di­tion to the of­fer­ings in 2018.

“These life-sized and quirky re­claimed iron sculp­tures will be in 14 dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions.

“They’re all dif­fer­ent and will add a whole new di­men­sion to the fes­tiv­i­ties.”

Ms Stone said she en­cour­aged peo­ple to try one or all of this year’s master class.

“I would love peo­ple to go along to the Fes­ti­val of the Grape at Faber Vine­yard. It’s an all-day event with very rare tast­ings di­rect from the bar­rel and that’s pretty spe­cial,” she said.

“I also think that some of the new master classes look fan­tas­tic and I’m per­son­ally keen to try my hand at mak­ing mac­arons at Mai­son Saint Honore and cook­ing classes at Swan Val­ley Sis­ters.”

Swan Val­ley favourite and Maal­inup Abo­rig­i­nal Gallery owner Dale Til­brook has been named as one of this year’s am­bas­sadors for the event.

She said it was a priv­i­lege to be an­nounced as one of the am­bas­sadors and was proud to con­tinue her work in show­cas­ing what the Swan Val­ley had to of­fer.

“I’m so thrilled to see so many master classes this year at En­twined, where peo­ple can get in­volved,” she said.

“I’ll also be tak­ing part in two events this year with Feast by Fer­vor and Slow Food us­ing bush food.

“En­twined is such a great event be­cause not only does it show off lo­cal pro­duce and the re­gion, but it in­vites peo­ple to go be­hind the scenes, meet the lo­cal pro­duc­ers and learn how ev­ery­thing is made.”

En­twined in the Val­ley will run from Oc­to­ber 4 to 7 in the Swan Val­ley.

Events and tick­ets will be avail­able from Septem­ber 3 at en­twinedinthe­val­ley.com.
