Two-day Craft in the Park event has something to satisfy all tastes

2010-05-26 00:00

WITH just two days to go before the opening of the inaugural Witness Craft in the Park exhibition at Alexandra Park on Friday, the park is abuzz with crafters, artists and organisers.

The two-day craft exhibition will lead straight into the annual Nashua Art in the Park, which opens at the same venue on June 2 and runs until June 6.

The concept of creating a separate event for crafters was to provide an exclusive platform for quality craft, and 55 crafters will be exhibiting at this unique event.

Their work has gone through a selection process to ensure a high standard, and there will be craft on show to satisfy all tastes. The event is open from 10 am to 8 pm on both days and a nominal R10 admission fee will be charged. Children under the age of 12 will be allowed in for free. No dogs are allowed other than guide dogs. Parking will be available at Kershaw Park.

As soon as the craft side of the exhibition closes, Art in the Park opens. You’ll have to get there early if you want to stand a chance of securing one of the beautiful miniature works of art by Beth Freeman-Kane, and one of the highlights of the exhibition this year will be the carvings of Alson Zuma.
