Saturday Sessions spark creativity at Bas

Local artists have teamed up with the Bas to share their skills with the community at hands-on creative workshops.

Part of the programming for the Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre, Saturday Sessions at the Bas are held on the second Saturday of each month in the centre’s workshop rooms until December.

Workshops include Papermaking and embedding nature finds with Mandy Hillson, Art of wire with Andrea Warren, Bead threading with Virginia Aland, Twined basketry with Ruby Berry, Upcycling books with steampunk with Carmel Cox, Collaging with Lee Honey, Art techniques with Stuart Whitelaw and Ecodyeing with Sue Barford.

Eurobodalla Council’s creative arts development coordinator Indi Carmichael said the workshops added to the vibrancy of the Bas centre as a creative hub for the community.

“We were keen to provide a series of workshops where participants could immerse themselves in a fun and hands-on class while learning artistic techniques,” she said.

“No experience is needed, and participants will be able to take home something special they have created.”

Ms Carmichael said it was great to see the Djinima and Bunjala rooms at the Bas being used as the purpose-built creative spaces they were designed to be.

The spaces can also be booked by members of the public through Council’s bookings office on 4474 7447.

Saturday Sessions are $120 to cover costs and are being run as a trial until December.
