What's on

Get Creative for Health + Happiness!


EXHIBITION

You're invited to check out artist in residence Mikaela Castledine's exhibition at The Bank Gallery, 8 Macpherson Street in Carnamah.

10am to 2pm on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th May
10am to 2pm on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd May

These works form part of an anthology of sculptural illustrations of personal fairytales, made from childhood memories and family chronicles. The exhibition is populated with characters from my childhood and from stories that have been lent to me by others. Once brought to life they will tell new stories of bones and blood, of falling and fear and all the many beatings of your heart.

Act Belong Commit Twig Sculptures

We invite you to be guided by Mikaela Castledine to create an animal sculpture using found twigs from local trees. These are free workshops and no RSVP is required.

10am to 1pm on Wednesday 19th May at The Exchange, 4 Macpherson Street in Carnamah.

11am to 2pm on Sunday 23rd May at Byrne Park in Three Springs (or in the town hall if it's raining).

Create your own FOUND POEM

You're invited to join Mikaela Castledine to create your own FOUND POEM. This workshop takes a page cut from a book and choosing a series of words to form a poem then blackening the rest of the words on the page so it stands out.
