MACG Annual Christmas Fair

It is less than 10 weeks to Christmas and to help with gift buying Maleny Arts and Crafts Group will hold its annual Christmas Fair on the 25th, 26th and 27th November. It will be at the Community Centre, Maple Street, Maleny. Opening at 9am each day the fair will close at 4pm on Friday and Saturday and 3pm on Sunday.

Showcased this year will over 40 tables of unique handcrafted items all made by local artisans who are members of Maleny Arts and Crafts Group.

To choose from will be a wide variety of woodcraft, glassware, pottery and sculpture and fine art including paintings. Also either woven, spun or hand dyed silk fashion items.  Fabric creations including quilted and sewn items will be available. For that extra special culinary delight choose from jams, chutneys and preserves.

From something simple as a hand painted plate or cup to a painted masterpiece there is something for everyone.

The Clay workers were nominated to make an item for our Christmas raffle. A lot of thought needed to make something that our group of nearly 30 people could participate in the making including many new clay workers. A birdbath was suggested and pots for plants would give our new people a chance to learn a new technique in clay hand building. A contemporary design was the choice of the group and work started. Clay purchased and all hands willing and many beautiful pots were created. And the birdbath was crafted by some of the long term clay workers. It has now drying for  about 10 weeks and is waiting to be fired in our electric kiln and will be finished with pot plants. Many have learnt a lot from this one project

Here is a sneak preview of the raffle prize. Not quite finished yet. Still drying out ready to fire.
