The Arts in the Olives is a festival celebrating the creative arts. The festival is a collaboration between the residents of the Lost World Valley Tourist Collective and BADCAP-Beaudesert and District Community Arts Projects. On offer are a variety of workshops in disciplines such as basket weaving, breadmaking, blacksmithing and more -much more. The site is the lovely Worendo Olive Grove, Lost World Valley in the Scenic Rim of South East Queensland.
There are an array of interesting and informative activities that will take a good part of the day to fully appreciate. There are olives and olive products, yoga, massages, photography and drawing – to name but a few. The festival will again offer an exciting programme of music entertainment as well as gourmet food and wine tasting amongst the wonderful variety of artisan stalls offering beautiful handcrafted goods.
Date for 2015 is Sunday May 8th – Mothers Day.
An important objective is to be all about community at the grass-roots level where it counts. The festival is predominantly volunteer operated and would not operate without this major component. One of the important aims of the festival is to support and encourage local arts practice. But thanks too to the Scenic Rim Council.
The workshops are affordable and are aimed at a broad range of ages, interests and abilities. The organisers are delighted that they can offer several free workshops for children- the children love it and their parents are free to participate in their own choice of workshop.
