Blacktown Arts & Crafts Group Open Day - What a success!

A beautiful sunny day, great arts & crafts, and lots of welcome visitors - what more could we ask for?

A regular stream of people came through the gates and spent time visiting the talented members of BACG - perusing their arts & crafts, taking home some very creative items, and viewing the demonstrations of art, pottery and multi-crafts. It was great to see members of the local community, and some people from farther afield, supporting BACG.

The grounds surrounding The Huts was ideal for the stall holders to set up their tables and wares...

Each of the groups within BACG set up a stall and display of member's works...

Our talented artists put on a great display

A stall belonging to a couple of our members - a fantastic display

The BACG Fibre Group stall, with member's work for sale

Pottery and paintings for sale

Inside the pottery room, the work of the pottery classes was on display

And the trader stalls were very welcome...

BACG has donated some items, including a beautiful quilt to be raffled to help raise money for the Relay for Life for the Cancer Council of NSW. It was great to have them here as part of our Open Day.

Beautiful wooden beads

In the Art Room, the kids from the Children's Art classes created some bunting to showcase the work they are doing in their classes. Thanks for your hard work in creating these!!

All of the members who took part in the day had a wonderful time, whether they were demonstrating, working on a stall or just visiting. Thanks to everyone who worked hard to make the day possible!
