Creative HeARTS Space

Creative HeARTS Space

Creative HeARTS Space is provided by the Market as a community Arts & Crafts workshop space. Each month we offer a varying range of Arts & Crafts activities for both children and adults. With a focus on natural fibres and the Old Crafts i.e.  Basket Weaving, crochet, knitting, spinning, string making, crystal wrapping, beading, screen printing, painting, etc. Located opposite the Chai tent, it is a place to relax and tap into your creative spirit.

This month the space will hold free workshops for folks who wish to learn various craft projects, each month the workshops vary. Come and have a seat and pull up some craft and have a yarn. A great place just to create and watch the market go by.

Weather Update 14th Dec

Yes the Market is on! We had some lovely rain yesterday but the oval is in good condition and we are looking forward to a great day. We hope to see you here.

Sadie & Jay

Sadie & Jay

A beautiful collision of divergent music styles resulting in music you can connect with. Jay grew up in a family deeply rooted in traditional folk music whilst Sadie has been a singer of jazz, blues, soul, world & roots music. Sadie & Jay play beautiful songs sung with earthy and soaring harmonies accompanied by intricate finger style playing. Their repertoire of originals and eclectic covers include moving ballads, humorous ditties & high paced musical romps.

Alisha Todd

Alisha Todd

A hopeful girl raised on country, now an optimistic, youthful lady living a soulful, pop-inspired musical lifestyle. Her sound brings pleasure to those who get a little excited over the clear tone of Jewel and the soulful sexiness of Corrine Bailey Rae, floating over a diverse range of genres delivered with a passionate performance; from youthful, pop, singer-songwriter to more recently incorporating a touch of roots and folk-ish grooves, melodically soulful hooks and conscious lyrics.

This month the Creative HeARTS space will be a buzz with activity. Creative kids will be making Garden angels and decorative home style wrapping paper while big kids can come and learn how to use Bangalow Palm fronds to create Xmas hamper baskets.

We will also have an young indigenous artist in residence sharing his skills and talent on site.

Hope to see you all there.

Workshops vary between $5 – $25 dollars.

Bill Jacobi

Bill Jacobi

Bill uses foot percussion, lap slide and open tuned guitars, and a combination of finger picking and bassline driven rhythm that snakes and rattles around songs both evocative and passionate. The result is a repertoire of engaging and exciting material that runs the gamut from folk to funk, from hillbilly to hip hop and beyond.

Creative HeARTS Space September

There will be a variety of activities happening in the  Creative HeARTS Space this month. Kim and Deb will facilitate a doll crafting circle using natural fibres and
beautiful African fabrics. The proceeds of which will go to support a family of 13 children in Africa who have lost their parents.

There will also be crystal wrapping with Jackie. Drop in for a chat and some creative fun
