We have been in our fabulous renovated venue at Primrose Park Arts Centre for a few weeks now and are gradually settling in and getting all our equipment and materials stored in their new spaces and cupboards.
The studio continues to have work done to it as we approach the official Opening Day and this week the North Sydney Council gardeners came in and planted the garden near the new door and outside the park entrance.
We are so pleased to have been able to contribute to the decision about which plants were to populate the exterior of the building. The Council have provided kangaroo paw, bladey grass, kangaroo grass, NZ flax and some other grasses – all of which can be used to make paper.
Obviously we have to leave the plants alone through Autumn and Winter so they can establish themselves and then we’ll be able to harvest them in Spring. How exciting is that. It really puts meaning into the phrase ‘locally produced’!
