It has been said forever that the Buderim Craft Cottage, a unique asset to Buderim and the Buderim community, is the place to go to exercise one's creativity and for those of us who are looking to purchase local artisan crafted special treasures and gifts, look no further!
The Buderim Craft Cottage is opening its doors and inviting the local community to come along for our "Spring Open Day" at the Atrium Gallery | Buderim Craft Cottage on Saturday 8th September from 10am – 2pm.
This is a great opportunity to enjoy the display of art and craft while chatting to the artists and watching them create their masterpieces. Our featured artists include representatives from many groups, including Multi Mixed Media Art, Patchwork, Fabric Art, Painting, Pottery, Silversmiths and Yarns & Fibres. Along with our exhibitors we have some fun craft activities for all.
A Little bit of Buderim Craft Cottage history:
Buderim Craft Cottage was started by a keen group of artists meeting in homes and rented rooms around Buderim. In 1967 Buderim Craft Cottage was officially formed. Over the 50 years the membership has grown to 13 individual groups and over 300 members.
In 1975 we moved to the present location. The Cottage has had many additions and improvements over the years and this, now, provides a beautiful setting for annual or biennial group exhibitions, Buderim Craft Cottage Winter School as well as the well- known community Buderim Easter and Christmas Fairs.
Another Buderim Craft Cottage event to look forward to is the Buderim Craft Cottage Silversmith & Life Drawing Exhibition & Sale
