Arts and crafts centre cancels classes

The Ettalong Beach Arts and Crafts Centre has cancelled its classes for the rest of the year.
Club president Mr Peter Mulholland said that, due to ongoing Covid restrictions, there would be no classes for the remainder of the year.
The November 2020 Annual Exhibition and Sale of Work would also be cancelled.
Mr Mulholland said the art centre committee had made the decision at a recent meeting.
“Most of our Ettalong Beach Arts and Crafts Centre family have managed to maintain contact with fellow members,” he said.
“Much as we love to work at our favourite craft, the most important thing is the camaraderie of exchanging ideas and admiring each other’s work.
“Some of our members, tutors and students had remained active,” Mr Mulholland said.
He said tutor Ms Judith Hoste had a watercolour exhibition at the Gosford Regional Gallery and Edogawa Commemorative Garden, which was open for viewing until Wednesday, October 7.
The Centre’s Boobs and Bags project was still supplying comfort clothes to hospitals, along with pottery, stitchery and patchwork groups meeting informally in homes, he said.
