The Coraki Craic

You can learn to make fabric sculptures like these by Yvonne Pickens at her workshop this Saturday at the Coraki Tea Tree Art Prize & Artsfest.

Its that of time of year again when the pretty river village of Coraki comes alive with its Tea Tree Art Prize & Artsfest, which runs this Friday to Sunday, October 27-29.

The Tea Tree Art Prize opens at the Youth and Community Hall on Friday at 7pm (with prize presentation and entertainment) and is open Saturday and Sunday with artworks displayed in a wide range of categories encompassing all genres and media.

Saturday night at 5.30pm sees world music band Stipsky doing its thing on the riverbank. The village will fill with the sounds of Turkey, Egypt, Macedonia, Ireland, Spain, Klezma, Gypsy... and with a bit of funk for extra fun.

Then its time for a hip hop performance by the Coraki kids under the expert groove guidance of Daniella Finkenauer, Jason Campbell and Rangimarie Ferguson.

Then theres the filmfest featuring a Dad and Dave comedy from 1936 which will be screened on the banks of the river. (Like they did in 36...)

During the day theres a series of workshops including fabric sculpture, mosaics, basket making and card making. And demonstrations like china painting, oil painting and felt making.

Its big weekend in picturesque Coraki.
