Delve into art this week­end

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

Fol­low­ing on from the suc­cess of last year, the Art Fest for 2017 is on this up­com­ing week­end, Septem­ber 16 and 17, at the Co­bram Show­grounds.

The Art Fest 2017 is pre­sented by Moira Arts & Cul­ture and pro­vides a unique op­por­tu­nity to learn a new skill or to en­hance an ex­ist­ing one.

More than 20 work­shops will be of­fered over the week­end, once again.

Par­tic­i­pants have the op­por­tu­nity to un­der­take in-depth, full-day work­shops or up to four half-day tasters, for a real cre­ativ­ity boost.

Qual­ity tu­tors have been en­gaged to share their knowl­edge and pro­vide hands-on ex­pe­ri­ences.

Tu­tors in­clude Har­ri­son Collins for black­smithing, Ray­mond Hill for oil or acrylic paint­ing, Kim Carter for tex­tile art and Michelle Bordignon for patch­work piec­ing and quilt­ing work­shops.

‘‘We are also ex­cited to have Ross Pater­son agree to tu­tor the wa­ter­colour work­shop,’’ Art Fest co-or­di­na­tor Karyn Day said.

‘‘Ross is recog­nised as one of Aus­tralia’s best artists in wa­ter­colour and oil.’’

Other work­shops in­clude work­ing with wool, felt­ing, leather­work, pho­tog­ra­phy, clay work and lead­light­ing.

Work­shops are for those aged 16 years and older.

There will be a tu­tors’ dis­play over the week­end, for par­tic­i­pants to see ex­am­ples of the tu­tors’ work.

A pre­view of this dis­play will be open to the pub­lic on Fri­day night from 5 pm to 7 pm at Kil­lara House.

Moira Arts & Cul­ture is spon­sored by Moira Shire Coun­cil.
