Snare your mum an arty gift at Mur’bah gallery market
IF your mum has an arty bent a visit to the Tweed Regional Gallery this weekend could be timely.
The sixth Artisan Handcrafted Market is being staged at the gallery on Saturday in time to snap-up a last minute gift for Mother's Day on Sunday.
The Friends of Tweed Regional Gallery President Lyn Stewart said visitors would be able to purchase special hand-crafted items for their mothers, confident it would be a one-off
"From our experience with previous markets, we are expecting large numbers of shoppers and we'll be bracing for a 10am rush when we open the doors," Ms Stewart said.
"Meeting the person who created the bangle or bowl, tea rowel or journal you buy adds another layer of meaning."
Artists whose work will be on sale will include Michelle Beavis (beads), Francesca Rockette (handbags and necklaces), Freyja Tasci (food wraps), Anne Mossman's (fine porcelain), Pirate's Dreaming (silver jewellery), Mon Monabu's (whimsical artworks), Susan Simonini's (earthenware ceramics), Olive and the Volcano (letterpress-designed stationery), Tamsin Ainslie (artwork and ceramics), Deadwood Creative (skateboard art), Lucille Atkins (reclaimed metal and silver jewellery) and Kambamboo (handmade fabrics).
The market is on from 10am-4pm at the gallery at 2 Mistral Rd.
