Contemporary Craft Retreat Canberra

Contemporary Craft Retreat in Canberra, 2012 

From far and wide artists travel to Greenhills Conference Centre
For  blissful days happily chatting, creating , sharing,  
Silver, copper, bronze – all learning from a fun presenter
Polymer, Paverpol, faux glass and felt for wearing.

Lumps of clay formed dragons, camels, swans and goats.
Etched metal and flower boxes – so much activity!       
While Day 1 was cold enough to wear our coats
Nothing stops these artists’ creativity.

Nature’s beauty makes this a perfect place  
To greet and meet  our friends again
But we need leaders with charm and grace.  
Thank you, thank you  Lex, Denise and Jen.
