Today’s Hunter Arts Network Art Bazaar at Lambton Park was a huge success!

Thank you to everyone who attended Hunter Arts Network Art Bazaar today at Lambton Park and supported our local artists and artisans – we had such a huge line up of incredible makers. We were thrilled to see our first 2022 Art Bazaar attract such a great turnout. Although the day started off soggy underfoot this soon dried out and we were very lucky to have break from the rain with plenty of sunshine giving us and the huge crowd a pearler of a day and I sold my “Empty Shelf” painting

Here’s some photos from today:

“90 zips” wall hanging now complete!

“90 zips” is #2 in my zip wall hanging series, #1 was “121 zips”. “90 zips” was made using all of the blue coloured zips and is also adorned with ocean-themed charms.

I sorted hundreds of zips by colour for my zip wall hangings after I had sourced them from op shops around Newcastle and Lake Macquarie in 2007 (before Covid).

Zip wall hanging update

This is the layout for my next zip wall hanging which is using all of the blue zips have sourced. I purchased hundreds of zips from op shops around Newcastle and Lake Macquarie in 2007 (before Covid so the zips are Covid-free). I have sold my first zip wall hanging last month which contained 121 zips using the purple, yellow, orange, pink and red zips. Stay tuned for progress photos after the sewing has commenced.
