Unlimited arts on offer

THIS weekend will see a flurry of artistic talent as Tweed Unlimited Arts holds its open weekend at Pioneer Parade, Banora Point.

This collection of groups who use the premises at Pioneer Parade practice art, embroidery, pottery and spinning and weaving.

"Saturday, June 30, and Sunday, July 1, will be our annual winter open weekend when we all have our art on display and for sale." said a spokesperson for the groups.

"The potters have been making flower vases and will be displaying and selling them with flowers in the style of Ike oz bana.

"The potters have also 'thrown' soup bowls and visitors can purchase a bowl, sit on the veranda and have the bowl filled with home made soup for lunch."

The pottery group will also be having an outdoor "raku" firing on Saturday.

"The spinning and weaving group will be demonstrating from fleece to garment and winter hand spun and handmade scarves, gloves, garments will be available."

One of the members will bring alpacas from their farm.

In the main building, the old schoolhouse will display paintings with the theme "close to home" and these will be on sale.

"Embroiderers have been making snakes, butterflies and insects and have plenty to see and buy," the spokesperson said.

Artists will be demonstrating various styles of painting with Bruce Moore demonstrating how to make garden art from blocks of hebel and aerated concrete blocks.

TUA has just received a state government grant to renovate the gallery building and make it more user-friendly.

"This will enable more space for more members," the spokesperson said.

"Have a look at what we do and see if you would like to join a group."

Morning and afternoon teas and lunch will be available at Pioneer Parade Banora Point near the water tower next to the SES HQ on Saturday and Sunday, from 9am to 4pm.
