Artistic conversations One of the best places to see local art and craft Buderim's Craft Cottage. This not-for-profit association provides training and facilities for over 300 local artists and craftspeople.. Its gallery is open daily and through the year hosts special exhibitions, art and craft fairs, and workshops.
The annual "Sculptured Garden" exhibition hosted by the Cottage's 40 plus ceramic artists and sculptors since 1997, will be held again in October 2015, over 9 days. Originally the exhibition included only ceramic (clay) sculpture designed for gardens. These days the participating artists integrate other media into their exhibition work, including glass and metals, and also exhibit sculptural works for interiors, wall art and functional pottery.
The 2015 exhibition will include a special collection of pieces on the theme "Conversations". The artists are free to express the theme in any way they wish. The only rule is that each piece in the exhibition must incorporate some ceramic materials. Anyone who wishes to check out the talent of this artistic group before the exhibition need only visit the garden surrounding the Cottage, where several sculptural works and murals made by the group are on permanent display. The latest of these, a large mural honouring Australia's service men and women, was unveiled just before Anzac Day 2015, and now has a permanent home on the western wall of Buderim's War Memorial Hall, facing the garden.
Dates and hours: Saturday 10th to Sunday 18th October 2015, daily 9am to 4pm.
Second weekend coincides with Buderim Garden Festival which will feature a number of "open" gardens as well as a flower show.
