Workshop of inspiration
BETTER Homes and Gardens presenter Tara Dennis made an appearance at Tweed Heads Bunnings yesterday, sharing her crafty do it yourself skills with eager shoppers.
The TV personality spent four hours in the centre, running a workshop, performing demonstrations and answering questions.
Ms Dennis said during breaks from her hit show she loves to travel across Australia meeting fans and sharing tips.
“A few of the presenters from the Better Homes and Gardens team do this and I visit a lot of Bunnings store across Australia,” Ms Dennis said.
“The best part is inspiring the people who come along and showing them new ideas. They just want to go home and get started straight away.”
Ms Dennis said she was just on a flying visit to the Tweed region and was hoping to explore the area.
“I only have an hour or so to look around, but I would love to come back and spend more time in the Tweed area,” Ms Dennis said.
John McIntosh, Tweed Heads South Bunnings activities organiser, said free activities like this were a great way to give the community a chance to meet influential instructors.
“We are hoping to have a few more people like Tara visit our store in the next few months,” Mr McIntosh.
“We hold a number of free D.I.Y workshops on Saturday and Sunday, for both children and adults.
“Bunnings supports the community and we have a great crowd here today who are very enthusiastic.”
