Gin Gin Makerspace series shares creativity

Previous art workshops that have been held in Gin Gin.

Residents, artisans and community groups will delight in the new Gin Gin Makerspace series with creative workshops on the way and a call out for more hosts.

The all-new Gin Gin Makerspace is looking to bring the community together calling for participants and facilitators for the upcoming workshop series.

The series' scheduled events so far feature mosaics, tea making, junk art windchimes, woodworking, water colours and painting.

Organised by the Gin Gin Neighbourhood Centre, each workshop will have a different focus with community members or groups teaching others in the community a different creative technique.

Bundaberg Regional Council’s Community Services portfolio spokesperson Cr Tracey McPhee said the workshops would be a fantastic opportunity for the community to come together to learn new skills from one another.

“The workshops are a great way to introduce locals to existing community groups and in turn increase group membership with community groups encouraged to register their interest,” Cr McPhee said.

“The workshops will either be free, or partly subsidised by the Neighbourhood Centre to make learning new skills affordable and accessible for community members to increase social connections within their community and reduce social isolation.

“I encourage anyone who can get to the sessions to attend, you never know, you might just find a new hobby!”

If you have a skill that you would like to share with the community contact the Gin Gin Neighbourhood Centre by emailing ggnc@bundaberg.qld.gov.au or phoning 4130 4630.
