Christmas Arts and Crafts Fair


The Maleny Arts and Crafts Group will be holding their Christmas Arts and Crafts Fair at the Maleny Community Centre in Maple Street over the weekend of 26, 27 and 28 November.

The theme this year is “A Christmas Spectacular” and the 200-plus artisans from MACG are reflecting the vibrant colours of the Blackall Ranges in the many quality hand made home-ware and gift items that will be on sale. Items include pottery, paintings, sewn items, preserves, quilting and woodwork - just in time for those early Christmas presents.

Café MACG will be serving freshly made home-style morning and afternoon teas and luncheon with freshly brewed tea and coffee all day from 10am.

The MACG Christmas raffle prize this year is 4 sets of prizes consisting of 4 small themed paintings plus a piece of pottery for each set. All artworks are recent works by member artists. The prizes are currently on display at the MACG Gallery in Maple Street and tickets are $2 each. The winning tickets will be drawn at 3pm on Sunday 28 November

Don’t miss out on this terrific showcase of quality Blackall Range-made arts and crafts. Entry to the Fair is free and doors will be open from 9am to 4pm each day.

Clayworkers go Raku

The MACG Clayworkers fired up the Raku kilns this week for a group workshop run by Mieke van Sambeeck.
The results were magnificent as can be seen in the following images. Thank you to photographer Colleen Atkin.

The MACG Clayworkers is a self-help group that meets at the MACG Centre within the Maleny Showgrounds each Thursday morning. New members are welcome.
