HORSHAM’S Anglican Church will host an arts and craft display and demonstration with afternoon tea at 1pm on Saturday, October 15. Event organiser Leanda Elliott said the display would be at the Anglican Church hall.

“It will run for three hours from 1pm to 4pm,” she said. 

“We have invited 13 different sorts of crafts people to this event.”  

Crafts people and artists from across the Wimmera will display their pieces.

Works will include embroidery and cross stitch, patchwork and quilting, wire knitting, card making, wood turning, cake decorating, mosaics, felt making, spinning, painting, fabric bag making and more styles of creative art. 

Ms Elliott said this was the first time the church had hosted such an event.

“Everyone is looking forward to it – it gives the artists the chance to show how they do their work,” she said. 

“I think everyone will be showing how they do their work, except for the woodworkers.” 

She said it would give art and craft enthusiasts the chance to witness the creation of the craft items and talk to the artists practicing them.

Visitors will be able to enjoy a Devonshire afternoon tea and there will be craft activities for children to take part in. 

Ms Elliott said  the activities for the children would cost $2 to participate. 

“The activities will be something along the line of making a small Christmas ornament to take home,” she said. 

“Afternoon tea will be scones, with cream and jam as well as tea or coffee.”

Entry is $10 per person, which includes the afternoon tea. Primary school students can enter free. 

“It’s a really good opportunity to find out about the different crafts people around the community,” she said. 

“If people are interested in taking up a new craft, they will have the chance to ask for tips as well.”
