2018 is scooting past fast as often happens at this busy time of year, so have a think about whether your partner/wife/Mum, your Aunt, your Sister or even yourself might like a unique gift from the Artisans Nest Gallery in Bodalla.
The ‘Nest’ can offer fantastic one-off garments, bags of all types and sizes in many luscious fabrics and leather, and unique jewellery.
Or perhaps your loved ones might like some new clothing in naturally dyed silk?
If you have a family member who has an interest in the environment, then you might consider something from the range of upmarket, recycled garments.
Simple scarves in silk and felt might appeal, and, if you are looking for something that you can pass down within your family in the future, come and have a look at the range of jewellery. It comes in all shapes and sizes, from very inexpensive items to the very sophisticated.
In fact, the ‘Nest’ stocks all kinds of wonderful textile craft work, including weaving, felting, embroidery and patchwork, in addition to its range of bags, jewellery, paintings and mosaics.
The group is very much at the forefront of a village bursting with creative energy.
It has just enjoyed a makeover, which features new paintwork and a reconfiguration of the pathway from the next door Dairy Shed, which has greatly improved access to the gallery.
Regular visitors already know that the ‘Nest’ is dedicated to showcasing the work of artists and craftspeople in the Eurobodalla. 2018 is its seventh year of operation as an artist run space in this 1870s cottage in the main street of historic Bodalla.
The ‘Nest’ continually welcomes new members to the group. Two of the latest arrivals are internationally recognized, award winning, Narooma-based artist, Margaret Moran and resin artist, Natasha Flynn. Please come along and take a look at Margaret’s paintings in pastel, and in oil, featuring local landscapes, and Natasha’s resin paintings, plates and bowls.
And, if you are a local creative artist, would you like to join this like-minded group of people and sell your creations in Bodalla? Please contact Sue Jameson on 0408 634 237, or Jan Harding on 0419 260 811. Application forms are also available at artisansnestbodalla.com
