Walter Reid Cultural Centre to host come and try open day

ARTS groups at the Walter Reid Cultural Centre are encouraging people to 'come and try' the artforms represented in the centre at the Open Day on July 11.

The Walter Reid Cultural Centre is home to a variety of local clubs that engage in a range of art forms.

Chair of Rockhampton Regional Council's Communities Committee, Cr Rose Swadling said that the Open Day gave people the opportunity to have a close look at the arts and crafts represented in the centre.

"If you have ever wanted to learn more about or maybe even have a try at wire wrapping, badge making, brooches, rings, pottery or many other artforms, then come on down to the Walter Reid Cultural Centre's Open Day," she said.

"All the clubs are very keen to welcome new members. I encourage people to come and try and, who knows, maybe event discover a hidden talent!" she said.

"There is a variety of arts and crafts clubs in the Walter Reid Cultural Centre and the members are very passionate about their artforms, so this is the ideal time for the public to drop in and see what's happening," Cr Swadling said.

The gallery will also be open with a display of works from all clubs.

The Walter Reid Cultural Centre is owned and operated by Rockhampton Regional Council. It is located on the corner of Derby and East Streets, Rockhampton. The open day will be held on Saturday 11 July from 9am to 2.30pm. Entry is free.
