Monthly craft day starts
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.
