Plat­form for the arty and crafty to shine

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

SOME of the com­mu­nity’s most cre­ative res­i­dents will have their work on show dur­ing this week’s Craft and Quilt Fair in Perth.

The fair, to be held at the Perth Con­ven­tion and Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre from to­mor­row, will fea­ture dis­plays, demon­stra­tions, hands-on ac­tiv­i­ties and guest artists.

South Lake res­i­dent Wendy Hop­per is a con­sul­tant for Close to my Heart, which of­fers women the chance to be cre­ative.

Ms Hop­per, who be­gan scrap­book­ing 18 years ago, will have a make-and-take stand at the fair, where her team will also host demon­stra­tions.

“I think we’re reach­ing that point in the cy­cle where arts and crafts are a pop­u­lar ac­tiv­ity again,” she said.

“There’s a lot of dig­i­tal op­tions, but there’s a big mar­ket for hand­made goods.

“It’s al­ways bet­ter to re­ceive a hand­made card in the mail then a mes­sage over so­cial me­dia.”

The fair will be open from 9am to 4.30pm.

Tick­ets are avail­able via www.craftevent­ or at the door.
