Wooli Out of the Box

One of the places I work is in an altered shipping container, its is converted into and 'Art Box' and it is mobile. It is one of a set of three- the 'Tech Box' is set up for computer activities and the 'Cafe Box' for catering. These boxes get loaded onto the back of a truck and moved around the beautiful Clarence Valley where I live.

The boxes are part of a council initiative to get activities out into the communities for youth to have some great things to do. You can see what is on offer in the boxes at the Eyes Wide website.

The Art Box has been moved to Wooli.

A gorgeous spot on the Wooli River and
I have the privilege of going out there to work this summer.

 I am offering a range of free workshops - print making,

artist trading cards,

funky felt mini me's and stamp making.

 There are workshops for 5 - 11 and 12 - 18s.

There are plenty of other artists offering workshops in this space as well, so make sure you drop in and have some fun. The Tech box is at Yamba and its shaping up to be a great summer.

Wooli is a very beautiful little village between the ocean and the river and surrounded by national parks and you find out more and see some lovely pictures here
While you are there you can check out the annual 'goanna pulling ' competition.
