Judy Brook and Fay Stumm are two of the exhibitors who will be taking part in the 2021 Queensland Winter Craft Festival

March 17, 2021

The Kingaroy Art Gallery’s annual chilly celebration of crafts will be on again in June and July.

The Queensland Winter Craft Festival has been held annually at the Kingaroy Art Gallery since 2016 but was forced to cancel in 2020 due to the COVIC-19 pandemic.

There will be daily exhibitions and displays, workshops and demonstrations running from June 1 to July 28 – as well as a Quilt Trail to explore.

Craftspeople will be demonstrating their skills inside the gallery, including Wooroolin’s Diana Bolton who will be making dichroic glass jewellery and Rosemarie Matthews-Frederick who will be doing paper tole during Week 1.

The two months of activities will also include Faberge-style egg making, amigurumi toy-making, photography, rug-making, spinning and weaving, textile art and “farm to fashion”.

There is also a “Hats With Attitude” competition and Plein Air painting.

A full catalogue of activities can be downloaded for the Kingaroy Art Gallery website

New for 2021 is the Quilt Trail which covers eight venues across the South Burnett, including the Kingaroy Art Gallery.

Other venues are: The Quilter’s Rest (Gordonbrook), Mulanah Gardens (Benair), Pottique (Coolabunia), QCWA Kumbia, QCWA Kingaroy, Somethings Country (Kingaroy) and Sew Much More (Kingaroy).

The trail sites will be inviting visitors from 10:00am to 4:30pm on July 24-25 and refreshments will be available at most venues.
