Artisans host visiting Mackay Caravaners 

Burdekin Artisans Paula Matthews demonstrates Jewellery Making

THE Burdekin Artisan Community Association Inc. hosted a group of visiting Mackay Caravan Club members as part of the Club’s visit to this district in February. 

The Mackay Club regularly arranges weekend “Rallies” away for its members and included the Burdekin Artisans Home Hill Craft Shop as part of their two to three-day stay in the Burdekin on this occasion. 

The members spent over two hours looking at the wide range of crafts made by the Artisans and were given demonstrations of some of the work undertaken by the local members including jewellery making and how to paint with alcohol ink. 

The visitors were provided with morning tea during their stay before moving into the neighbouring Ashworth’s Rock Shop where they inspected some of the unique items on display. 

The Artisans have hosted other organisations on visits to their display in the past.
