Something for everyone at Christmas craft market

Christmas craft market
Handmade baubles, ceramic nativity scenes, paintings and an assortment of creative craft will be for sale at the Christmas craft market on 4 and 5 December.

Community members will have a chance to shop local this Christmas as Bundaberg Woodworkers Guild, Bundaberg Pottery Group and Bundaberg Art Society combine for a Christmas craft market.

The three organisations will spread the Christmas cheer, as they open their doors for the weekend event.

Handmade baubles, ceramic nativity scenes, paintings and an assortment of creative craft will be for sale at the Christmas craft market on 4 and 5 December.

Bundaberg Pottery Group president Necia Rosevear said the Christmas craft market would also allow the galleries to open to the public with working demonstrations.

“Members will be working in each club room, demonstrating their skills and talking about their work,” Necia said.

“We are trying to encourage visitors to the centre and make it known that good quality, unique, original artwork is available at a most reasonable price.

“It is most important that local people support local artists – local buyers often follow the work of their favourite artist and are pleased to meet and speak with the makers.

“Local clients can become interested and decide to try the various arts (and) craft themselves.”

Bundaberg Art Society president Marilyn Batty said they were excited to be part of the Christmas craft market, and she encouraged the community to pop in over the weekend.

“The weekend will see the Hazzard Gallery open with their current exhibition Anything Goes and the Potters’ gallery and Woodworkers Gallery also open to the community,” she said.

The market will showcase the work of the Arts Society, Potters’ Gallery and the Woodworkers Guild Gallery and be open 8.30am to 1pm on 4 and 5 December at 95C Walker Street, Bundaberg.
