Korowal School Arts Muster

Korowal School is the venue for an old school tradition - an annual arts and crafts workshops - and it all starts this October long weekend.

Co-founder Samantha Tannous said the three day event offers creative workshops for like-minded creative people to make things together.

"Art and craft classes from ceramics to screen printing, textile arts and book binding, sustainable fashion and spoon whittling - there is something for everyone," Ms Tannous said.

"Held over the long weekend 5-7 October 2019, Arts Muster is offering more than a dozen different art and craft workshops ... Korowal School in Hazelbrook is the venue for all classes."

Beginners are welcome at the Hazelbrook school event. The workshops are for those over 18. There will also be a Twilight Makers' Market, specialist art and craft traders, and more.

Ms Tannous said the Blue Mountains has a very strong arts and cultural community, which is already excited about Arts Muster.

"People in the Mountains have enjoyed events such as Arts Muster in the past, and we are thrilled at the levels of support we have received so far - from both artists and students. We have an exciting range of arts and craft workshops lined up, and we are now taking enrolments online."

Ms Tannous said there will also be a traditional Hawaiian healing session, Ho'oponopono, held in the afternoon on Sunday October 6, so that all tutors and students can attend after the workshops.

"Many of the tutors are Blue Mountains locals, who are looking forward to a new avenue for sharing their skills and creative energy."

Lyttleton Stores in Lawson is hosting the Twilight Makers' Market, on Saturday October 6 from 5pm till 7pm. Many of the tutors at Arts Muster, as well as a selection of other local artists, will present fine art and handmade crafts for sale.

To ensure students enjoy their choice of workshop to the fullest, class sizes are limited to 15, so the organisers are encouraging people to enrol quickly to avoid disappointment. Prices range from $130 for one day to $390 for 3-day workshops, with a 10 per cent early bird discount available till August 31. The event is catered. Go to: www.artsmuster.com.au/
