Piecing together Woodburn history
Thanks to a new TAFE Outreach course run in Lismore, the Woodburn Visitors Information Centre is now adorned with this beautiful mosaic.
Ten students were involved in the community engagement project and constructed the mosaic in sections in the Woodburn CWA Hall over a period of 14 weeks before it was installed at the Visitors Centre.
The design for the mosaic was inspired by Woodburn’s history as a river town and was based on drawings from students at St Joseph’s Primary School in Woodburn.
“The project was initiated by community members and they are very proud of the skills gained in creating the mosaic and their contribution to promoting their community through the project,” Outreach co-ordinator Sue Weingarth said. “The large mosaic has generated a lot of community and visitor interest. It draws attention to Woodburn’s history as a river town and the important role of the Visitors Information Centre in promoting local tourism today.”
