THEY’VE spent the year planning, designing and creating.
And, students’ hard work will soon be on show at the Scone Grammar School’s Homegrown and Handmade Twilight Market.
Now in its second year, the market is set to include more than 50 stall holders, live entertainment, and other activities such as an Xmas craft corner and face painting.
Staff member Alice Forsythe said next Thursday's event was a way of supporting local community stallholders as well as encouraging students to show some entrepreneurial spirit and creativity.
“The whole theme is obviously homegrown, handmade but it’s just a great way to encourage kids to think of ideas and concepts,” she said.
“Everyone is welcome to attend. There will be live music by Tori Vines from 6-8pm and our Grammar Grind Cafe will provide plenty of dinner options including pizza, sushi, nachos, and fish and chips.
“It is a P & F funded event, with all proceeds raised going towards improving the School’s playground.
“Last year’s market had a really lovely festive feel to it, despite the fact that it was 40-degree heat for most of the day.”
One of the school stall items available for purchase during the event will be a reusable calico bag.
Year 7 students demonstrated their creativity by producing a large scale weaving to incorporate the theme of ‘Swept Away’ at the School’s recent Art Show.
The weaving, titled ‘Reuse/Rethink’, was constructed entirely out of discarded plastic bags and bottles. It was then produced in the form of a calico bag, which will be on sale for $20.
Some of the wide, and varied, stalls on offer by Scone Grammar School staff and students are: a Kids Xmas Craft Corner, a Year 4 class initiative which will have ‘hands on’ craft, games and activities; Homemade Cake Stall, Super Great Shakes from Year 9 Commerce; and recycled timber products handmade Xmas cards.
There will also be a number of local community stall holders, including Amanda Paradice Jewellery, Pukara Estate, and Willow Craft Gifts.
The market will go from 3-8pm.
