Come and see the work of over 40 local artists and mingle with people who love art and the environment.
All pieces will be for sale and it’s a great chance to pick yourself up an original artwork for your home or as a special gift – including paintings, photography and sculptures.
“In Their Hands” is also an opportunity to discover the wonderful resource and hub that is Carindale’s Sustainability Centre, run by the amazing team (most of who are volunteers) at B4C (the Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee).
80% of the funds from artworks sold go to the artist and 20% goes to the Bulimba Creek Catchment Environment Fund.

Upcycling Show and Tell | 9.30am. Flyer for this session (PDF)
Jane Milburn of Textile Beat (and as heard on 612 ABC Brisbane) will provide an overview of environmental, ethical and social implications of so-called ‘fast fashion’. She’ll showcase some of the upcycled garments created during the 365-day Sew it Again campaign to demonstrate ways we can reduce our fashion footprint. Tips for dressing with conscience, without sewing. Bring along a few garments and we can chat about their upcycling potential.
Art and environmental inspirations | 10.30am.
Lindy Perrins has been teaching arts and crafts on and off more than 20 years. In recent times, teaching adults in a weekly session, her main focus is giving people the opportunity to get back in touch with their creative side – with an emphasis on enjoyment and relaxation, rather than worrying about the outcome. She is a co-founder of the Art Appreciation Group which meets at Garden City Library once a month.
