Monthly craft day starts

Franklin County News - - News -

The Pukekohe com­mu­nity is about to have a mar­ket ded­i­cated to 100 per cent hand­made art and craft.

Frankly Crafty, Funky Art Mar­ket will be launched in Pukekohe on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 29, on from 9am to 2pm.

The mar­ket will be held once a month on the last Satur­day of each month at Franklin: The Cen­tre in the foyer and court­yard area in front of the li­brary and art gallery.

There was a wealth of tal­ented artists and craft work­ers in the wider Franklin area and now they had a place to come to­gether and dis­play their fan­tas­tic prod­ucts, said or­gan­iser Amanda Chap­man.

From up-cy­cled chil­dren’s clothes, gor­geous pil­lows, fudge, hand-bound jour­nals and jew­ellery to art and photography, there will be some­thing for ev­ery­one.

Not only is this ex­pected to be a great place to find that some­thing spe­cial but it will be an op­por­tu­nity to sup­port a lo­cal char­ity.

Ms Chap­man, a vol­un­teer tu­tor for Adult Lit­er­acy Franklin will be do­nat­ing ta­ble fees from the mar­ket to the char­ity.

And peo­ple are en­cour­aged to go along and drop a coin in the bucket, also for the char­ity.

Adult Lit­er­acy Franklin pro­vides free tu­tor­ing to any­one in the Franklin area who needs help with lit­er­acy and nu­mer­acy.
