This will be short post, mainly to let you know that I have put quite a few events onto the "Events" page, and have made a start to the Home & Garden page. I had quite a few problems with the blogger, trying to put pictures onto the pages. I quess it is being a little temperamental today. Anyway, the writing is there and I'll try to sort out the pictures when we are in town next.
The big event is the Pierre Bensusan concert and masterclass at the end of March. 2 years ago he came to Deloraine as part of his Australia tour (which went Sydney, Melbourne, Deloraine, National Folk Festival Canberra!!!). He did two performances on the night as the first performance had quickly sold out! In other words, if you don't want to miss out on hearing, arguably, the best guitarist in the world, then get your tickets as soon as you can.
Jacque and I went to a concert in Launceston last weekend. It was called "An Afternoon with Mozart" and was a prelude to the Launceston Player's "Amadeus" in April. If our afternoon is anything to go by, the musical proper will be terrific, and is highly recommended by us.
Where I have been able to, I have linked websites to the event, so that you can find out further details, and in most cases,even book your tickets.
Finally, sorry I couldn't get the garden photos onto the page. It really is looking great at the moment and I was looking forward to sharing it with you. Next week maybe?
John & Jacque
We are a home based arts business based in beautiful northern Tasmania, just outside the small but very creative town of Deloraine. Jacque is an artist who specialises in sculpting, especially garden art figures. When not doing clay work, Jacque paints and quilts. John sells books and CDs, especially music by Tasmanian musicians, who, despite the fact that we have a recording studio in town, are too modest to make CDs. We can be found at the Deloraine market on the first Saturday of each month, starting in September. We are exploring other appropriate markets and venues. In the fullness of time we will be setting up workshops etc. so keep an eye on our blogspot for these and other ventures. Thank you for taking the time to look at this, and do contact us should you see anything you like, or if you should want any art materials.
