5West Arnhem Wire - Fortnightly news in brief from Jabiru, Gunbalanya, Maningrida, Warruwi and Minjilang The West Arnhem Wire | 13 - 26 February 2014 lUNcHEON lOOkS AT INSPIRING cHANGE TUESDAY nights getting you down? Tired of the tube? Want to put a bit of colour into your life? Well its time to toss the Tuesday tedium and get your creative arms along to the Jabiru Art Crafts Group. The group meets every Tuesday night, except during school holidays, at the Kakadu Community Centre, and are keen to welcome new members who enjoy practising their art skills and sharing them with others. The group is for Jabiru residents who want to get together and share skills and enjoy doing art and craft together. All are welcome, and no skills are required. Art Crafts Group member Anne ODea says its all about making time in your week to do something for yourself taking the time to simply enjoy creating something. In the past we have done all kinds of things, including drawing and painting, jewellery, sewing, printing, leatherwork, mosaic, photoshop, clay, papier mache and community projects, Anne says. Each week I send out an email telling members what we are up to and what to bring, but we always have spare gear if anyone just turns up, or doesnt have the materials. There is no cost except the occasional contribution to materials if needed. You can check out the facebook site to see more photos of the many projects this creative collaborative has done. People can contact me for further info at windydea3@bigpond.com or just turn up, Anne says.
