The Sunshine Coast's caring clowning group, 'Coastal Caring Clowns', is holding an introductory clowning workshop "Clowning for Beginners !" on Saturday 6th March.

The workshop will run from 9 00 am until 4.00 pm.  The venue will be in KAWANA. It is necessary to book in advance for the workshop which will cost $25.00 and will include a light lunch.

The workshop is generously supported by the Sunshine Coast Regional Council and Starshots Maroochydore.

Coastal Caring Clowns (CCC) are inspired by the work of Patch Adams and strongly believe that "laughter is the best medicine".

For 9 years the clowns have been visiting hospitals, nursing homes and respite centres on the Coast, and the demand for the fun they bring to those they visit means more clowns are needed (the group has 14 actively clowning members at the moment, 10 women, 4 men -- supported by 8 non-clowning members). Visits are both on weekdays and weekends.

"Most of us have a clown inside -- why not join us and let it out" said Kevin Furness, President of CCC; "it doesn't matter how old you are -- anyone can be a clown -- our clowns range from 18 -- 80 years old.

At the workshop, participants will learn some of the history of caring clowning, clown make-up and costume, simple magic and balloon sculpturing, as well as playing some quite stupid games -- "we aim to make the workshop a real fun experience" said Kevin.
