The day was filled with arts, crafts, music, local food and people who live and love creativity.
Workshops included painting, drawing, felting, batik, weaving, photography, blacksmithing, poetry, basketry, mosaics and more.
Market stalls were filled with handmade crafts from regional artisans, scrumptious local food and artwork.
Music was created by emerging and established bands and singer/songwriters from the Scenic Rim.
“The Rim” community art and ecology project was also launched with the creation of the first community artwork by regional artists Dave Groom, John Jackson, poet Sally MacKinnon and over 60 people who helped paint the project’s first fabric painting. This painting will be included in “The Rim’s” community exhibition at The Centre, Beaudesert in 2012.
