This year’s River of Art is the occasion for Artisan’s Nest, the 2 year old textile inspired shop and Gallery in Bodalla, to hold a community art event entitled ‘Feathering the Nest’.
Artisans Nest is an enterprise run by its members, one of whom, Marian Webb, is an accomplished basket weaver who has constructed 2 stunning nests (approx 1m diameter) which are waiting for beautification by you. Once finished, you could own one, as a delightful piece of sculpture for your garden, verandah or house.
For 2 weeks we will have a constructed Nest at the Gallery and at the Family Fun Day at the Moruya Markets on 17th May for the public to ‘feather’, that is add to with beautiful things in whatever way takes your fancy. From 8 May to 17 May you can buy tickets in the raffle to win the nest, drawn 17/5/14. From 17/5 to 25/5 pay to play decorating the second nest to adorn our gallery/shop at 56 Princes Highway Bodalla
All proceeds are going to the Bodalla Rural Fire Brigade who are going to transport the Nest to the Moruya Markets on May 17th and transport it back to Bodalla for their Annual fundraising Dinner Dance with Spicy Fruit Chutney providing the LIVE MUSIC where the raffle for the first nest will be drawn
Come along to the Artisans Nest in Bodalla open 7 days from 10 am, or to the Family Fun Day Market in Moruya to enter the raffle and participate in this our first community art event. All our members are helping to supply beautiful additions for you to add to the nest and will be on hand to assist. It is now and will be a great work of art! Be a part of it!
