Budding artists hone their skills

KIDS can get creative this week at Tweed City Shopping Centre.

A craft village has been set up outside Wombats as part of the centre’s school holiday activities,

Marketing manager Megan Connellan said children can create their own canvas art for free.

“It’s quite popular with the mums and dads because it’s something they can take home,” she said.

“Parents do need to be there with their children, but it’s something they can do together.”

Banora Point grandmother Christine McDonald was enjoying the craft village with her two grand-daughters Tahlia and Zoe.

“They get to take them home and show Mum, which is the best part.

“We’ve just been at the movies; we saw Tangled.

“We’re having a day out of the sun because we went to the Banora pools yesterday.”

The craft village is open from 11am to 2pm DST until Saturday.
