I visited Maryborough for the Festive heart of Christmas celebrations. There were a range of offerings each day for families, from interactions with rescued wildlife to mural painting. It was held in the historic town hall. It was great to see families sharing new experiences and making gifts together outside of the commercial machinations Christmas. The event was hosted and organised by Fraser Coast Regional Council.
I ran sessions in badgemaking, bunting, decorative fans, printed tote bags, teepee making, pendant creations, flags and bandannas. Maryborough can be a whimsical town, and the Town Hall was a hive of activity.
