Join us for some Ettalong Beach Arts & Craft Fun!

Join us on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 November

If you are looking for some fun and frivolity on the weekend of 14th & 15th November this year you need go no further than the Coast Community Connections, Peninsula Community Centre at 93 McMasters Road Woy Woy.

During the day there will be a variety of singers, artists, musicians and members from Woy Woy School of Music displaying their talents, all helping to make the show welcoming and lively.

Ettalong Beach Arts & Craft Centre hosts an annual exhibition with beautiful gifts and artworks to suit every taste.

Beautiful handmade crafts and art

You will be impressed by the variety of hand crafted jewellery, paintings, pottery, quilts and hand sewn items made by our talented tutors and students. Every year our members manage to excel themselves when creating new and exciting artworks with care knowing they may be purchased as gifts for family and friends.

There will be the ever popular face painting for children, but we did have a few grandparents just trying it out for fun. And of course – the marvellous Shelly showing us how to make sun catchers, a true delight for the young and not quite so young!

This year in addition to all the exciting things we are bringing you we now have credit card facilities available for the benefit of our members and guests.

If you visited us last year you would know all about the magnificent café leading us down the road to temptation with a tasty treat, savoury or sweet – all home made goods – to have with your cup of tea or coffee while resting your feet. (what a good excuse to linger near the food).

For the discerning shopper there is just no better place to be to select the perfect gift for that someone special in your life. So just come in and shelter from the sun or rain – any excuse will do!

We look forward to seeing you all on:

SATURDAY 9am TO 4pm AND SUNDAY 10am TO 3pm 14TH & 15TH NOVEMBER 2015

Create shades and blends of colours that you would not have thought possible – and with no previous knowledge or experience required.

  1. This fabric colouring system works on any fabric type
  2. Colours can be mixed from nine pure pigments to create any colour you want
  3. Concentrated colours can be diluted or mixed to create any tint or shade

  5. A non-toxic, non-polluting product that is permanently set with a simple iron

Versatile, quick, easy, beautiful, effective and FUN!

  • Start Date – Wednesday 15th July 2015
  • End Date – Wednesday 9th September 2015.

The standard EBACC term fees will all apply – $120 for the term plus $15 membership (if not already a member for 2015).

How to apply:

  • Leave a message on the ‘Contact’ page of the web site – www.ebacc.com.au
