Moreton Bay Arts Council December 2016

Thank you….. To our Moreton Bay Arts Council members and creative friends for a great day on Saturday 26th at “Handmade meets the Arts”. it’s hard to believe visitor numbers reached in the 900’s – great to be supported by customers even in rainy weather. 

Throughout the grounds and the hub rooms we had a great showing of 28 market tents and 17 market tables. Excellent effort! Well done and thank you to our partner Handmade Redcliffe. This was our 3rd market day together and what a great team we were. This day was totally supported by the Pottery Group and the Redcliffe Art Society. As always, they present beautiful products and good sales. The winner of the MBAC raffle was Leigh Fagan from Zillmere - congratulations!

Next market days in 2017 are:
25th February, 6th May and the 25th November.
