Easter Art & Craft Show

Beautiful quilts, innovative textiles, unusual photographs and a huge variety of art works made the Trentham Easter Art & Craft Show another successful local event. About 2000 people visited the show, bought 61 pieces of art, and were impressed by the quality and range of work on display. It was particularly pleasing  to see many entries from Trentham  and Bullarto primary schools.

Peoples’ Choice (Art) went to Vanessa Gellibrand for her portrait of “Bear” a local Trentham character. Peoples’ Choice (Craft) was won by Jane Bloom for her stunning, mediaeval-inspired flower quilt.

The raffle, for a master-class with Annie Smithers of “du Fermier” restaurant fame, was won by Sarah Nankervis, daughter of the late Ellie Kemp, Trentham pharmacist and local benefactor.
