New MACS Studios opened by Mike Kelly

The official opening of the Montague Art and Craft Society Inc (MACS) new studios on 25 November by Hon. Dr Mike Kelly, Federal Member for Eden-Monaro, and Eurobodalla Mayor Liz Innes of the shared with Narooma Men's Shed was well attended. MACS and the Narooma Men's Shed have similar aims and objectives and the combining of the two into the same premises comes as a great partnership as both groups will be able to use the work spaces creatively on rostered times. MACS organisers welcomed the support of members who came out to the opening where several set up craft maker's stalls for visitors to browse and buy. Members of the Narooma Men's Shed also showed their creative talents and both groups look forward to working together in the future. For new members to MACS, this promises to be an exciting chance to meet experienced instructors using the large studio spaces to teach new art and craft skills. Textile groups such as felting and general sewing use the venue on Mondays, with mosaics using it on Wednesdays and Life drawing on Friday mornings. These self-help group times will be interspersed with tutorial groups.
