This is a newcomer-friendly event! This is a day without costumes, so you don’t have to worry about dressing up. There’ll be the opportunity to hang out and ask questions, and plenty of space to bring your own projects, power points and benches for sewing machines. The grounds are quiet and sunny for going outside and doing things like hand sewing in the sun or under a tree.

February 8
March 8

http://www.hornsby.nsw.gov.au/community/local-facilities/community-centres/community-centres/epping-creative-centre

Time: 9.30am – 4:30pm

If you would like to run a class for this day (or any other day for that matter) for adults or children (or both), we’d love to hear about it. Please email Tina/Cairistiona on tinofbeans001@gmail.com.

Time tables will be published about a week prior to each Dence Park day, please keep an eye out so that you know what is happening each month.

There is a break in the middle of the day’s schedule for a Pot Luck lunch. This would be a great time for anyone who would like to try out some of their period cooking on a receptive audience to bring out some of their creations. Alternatively just bring along something to share, it does not have to be a period dish. Remember to bring plates, cutlery, and a cup or mug if you wish to make a hot drink.

Bring a project you are working on, start a new project or come and learn something new, or even just bring a game to share and play.

This is a child–friendly event with boffer and games. All persons under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Trains: there are regular trains to Epping Station. Epping Station is 1.1 km from Dence Park, so the walk from the Station will take about 10-15 minutes.

Buses: you can catch the M54, which goes near Epping Station on Beecroft Rd every 20 minutes on weekends and will take you to within 500 meters of the Creative Centre. If you get off at the Epping Road near Crandon bus stop just two stops or if you miss that one the next stop will get you to within 80 meters of the Centre.

Cars: there is plenty of parking, a small portion of which is double parking, so please be aware of this.

VENUE Tues Nights – A&S Venue and Activity Details (From 20 Jan 2014 until TBA)

Hi Everyone,

For the next 10 or so weeks we have a dedicated space for A&S on Tuesday Nights (away from those loud fighters) at the Herb Greedy Hall, 76 Petersham Rd, Marrickville, 2204.

(Note: If you just put the address or name of the hall into Google Maps, you’ll possibly have difficulty finding it! There is a church on the corner of Marrickville and Petersham Roads, Herb Greedy Hall is opposite the church on Petersham Road. The entrance is right near the phone booth)

From 7pm until 10pm.

For the first week (tomorrow) it’ll be a simple ‘bring a project and be crafty together’ session. I know we have some musicians interested. I’ll be sewing (and happy to help anyone else with their sewing). Regular singing practice will also be there.

Kicking off two weeks from tomorrow I will be running a fortnightly pre-Festival sew-along (similar to something I did with the Ursulans last year. Details to follow). We will also be running two sessions to help all our non-clothed newcomers get some garb for Festival.

There is kitchen space, and space for 2 classes / workshops to be run concurrently. If you want to run a class or workshops then let me know.

Yours,
Clara van de Maes
A&S officer

Or if you would rather buses you can catch the M54 which goes near Epping Station on Beecroft Rd every 20 minutes on weekends and will take you to within 500 meters of the Creative Center if you get off at the Epping Road near Crandon bus stop just two  stops or if you miss that one the next stop will get you to within 800 meters of the Center. For those who want to drive there is loads of parking, some of it is double parking so if you are not staying all day make sure that you know who you are parking in front of it. Most of the parking is not double parking and is not a problem.
