Craft group brings community together

A COMMUNITY art group in Kingaroy is still crafting strong after four years.

Centrecare Community Connections Life-skill support worker Judy Belair said the craft sessions were every Wednesday from 12pm until 2pm in the Biscuit Tin at St Mary's church.

"People come along and we do a different kinds of work, from card making, painting, knitting and sewing,” she said.

"We're doing some leather work on a regular basis at the moment.

"We're making key rings, tags and eventually will get on to making purses and wallets.”

Ms Belair said the art sessions were "pretty casual”.

"There is no real set agenda, people can come along and basically get themselves out of the house and mix with the public,” she said.

"They can just have some fun and make some stuff.”

She said the event is open to anybody and everybody.

"We do get support agencies bringing people along,” she said.

"They get them out of their house and are introduced to other people to have fun.”

Community Connections also runs a Community Kitchen on Thursdays from 9.30am-1pm, as well as community gardening.
