Tomorrow around Tauranga

0

This is one of the most exciting times of the year for creative-focused events.  School and academic courses are concluding with exhibitions of work and talent; there are school fairs, markets and regular community fundraisers such as the Omokoroa No 1 School “Mower Day” and the Te Puna Quarry “QuarryFest”. 

Tomorrow, Sunday 10th is the final day of the annual, major exhibition of clay creativity from Bethlehem Pottery Club – don’t’ let the name fool you.  This is a collective of highly talented and creative artists, artisans and art tutors.  Bayclay 2019 with guest exhibitor and Judge Aimee McLeod is at the Baycourt Exhibition Hall, Durham Street, Downtown Tauranga.   An article about one of the Bethlehem Pottery Club members, Suzanne Sturrock will give you an insight into and indication of the talent and level of work you can expect to find in this exhibition.

It’s the annual Te Puna Quarry QUARRY FEST.  This is the annual Lions organised fundraiser for the work of the Quarry  (which is our Tauranga and Western Bays botanical gardens) 10am to 4pm entry with a $5 donation.  The road will be busy as this is an outstandingly popular event.  Loads of craft, music, food…you name it, it’s a wonderful Sunday in a wonderful setting.

And while you’re there you can take the opportunity to visit Cindy Lou Vintage on Snodgrass Road.
