'Alive And Creating' art exhibition

Alive And Creating
This year during Autumn, Colour City Creatives will be collaborating with the local entrepreneurial legends Gaye and Borry to mount an exhibition in their expansive cellar door space at Borrodell. Tim Winters a world renowned painter and printmaker will be opening the Alive And Creating exhibition.
Alive and Creating is a group exhibition of local artists who want to celebrate and share what living through the seasons looks like, feels like and is like. It is inspirational to be living in a town, located in a gently undulating landscape and whose name also means a colour. A colour that’s an important part of the rainbow! The Orange Autumn colours are a jazzy blend of warmth, Winter uses a monochrome palette, Spring softens the stark lines of trees with a dusting of green and gentle blossoms, finally Summer engulfs us in a riot of hues.
Come and meet the artists, enjoy the glorious view at Borrodell and if you’re peckish after the opening, the Sisters Rock Restaurant is only across the courtyard and has splendiferous food!

Colour City Creatives is a self-run cooperative of Orange and surrounds and consists of painters, weavers, video artists, poets, photographers, glass artists, clay artists and sculptors. They’re a wonderful group of local artists who love to share what inspires them because they find living here Artspirational and really enjoy this thing called, life.

"Weaving A Coiled Basket or Lampshade" workshop

Some exciting news!
Lanny Mackenzie will be running a weaving workshop weekend of 28-29 March: 
"Weaving a coiled basket Lampshade"
There are limited places so book early!
Lanny is an exceptional weaver who is also a fantastic teacher.
A valued member of Colour City Creatives, one of our 3D artists and our treasurer. Her unique weaving style is using found objects as part of her weaving process, enabling her to achieve great textural patterning. Often the weaving process and materials result in a sculptural form both beautiful and practical.

In this workshop you will be guided in creating one of her signature techniques and at the end of a fun weekend you will take home either a stunning basket or lampshade. All materials will be provided for the lovely object you will be making, including a frame for your lampshade.
Refreshments will also be provided but do bring your lunch.
