Sculptures in the Valley at festival
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 St 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.
