Christmas Market Weekend at the Fitter’s Workshop.

The week-end of December 15th, 16th and 17th I am taking part in the annual Artist Society of Canberra Christmas Art Market. This year it is being held in conjuction with the Old Bus Depot Christmas Market and the inaugural Designers Market. The Designers Market is going to become a regular monthly event at the Old Bus Depot and will be held on the 3rd Sunday of each month in 2018. I am going to make this part of my calendar of events which I participate next year.

Members of ASOC who are participating will each have a stall. We will be grouped together on the right hand side of the building if entering the building from the Glass Works doorway. There will be many other Christmas stallholders displaying their handmade creations in this area, but they will be trading on Saturday and Sunday only.

The Fitters Workshop is located just behind the Old Bus Depot building, Wentworth Avenue, Kingston, Canberra. The hours of the ASOC stallholders are Friday 3pm – 7pm. Saturday and Sunday 10am – 4pm.

Come along and enjoy the Christmas spirit.

Sometimes I come to the end of the process and I wonder how on earth I got here. It is a little like the pictures themselves. Long long walks up hills, down valleys and jumping on flat stones to cross streams. A variety of music playing in my head. Stories of happiness and tragedy in the news and hearing about peoples lives on the radio. Thoughts about my life and of those I love. Then, I look up and there before me, is the destination. But when to stop and enjoy the view. I have to decide when to sit down and do no more.

I’ll turn this one around so I can’t see it for a week before deciding whether the journey is complete.

A few weeks on: I entered this piece in this year’s Hunters Hill Art Exhibition and Prize and it was chosen as a finalist to hang in this year’s exhibition. How happy am I 😀👏🏻💃. For details about this exhibition please go to the news section of this blog.
