Rediscover Your Innate Creativity at this Vibrant Art Centre
Have you always wanted to be creative, but simply can't make up your mind what kind of media you'd like to work in? Taking up a new hobby can be exciting, but with the many great options that are available today it's sometimes hard not to get overwhelmed. Here in Perth there are several wonderful community arts centres that offer a diverse range of courses and workshops, allowing members and guests the chance to experiment with various art-forms, and one of the most dynamic of these would have to be Liddelow Homestead Arts and Crafts Centre in Kenwick.

Situated at 7 Cooper Avenue, the centre is a dynamic creative space that's located in one of the area's earliest colonial residences. These days the homestead's rooms have been converted into studios and gallery space, and every week a terrific selection of workshops are held there, ranging from drawing and painting to woodturning, patchwork, embroidery, pottery, mosaics, china painting, knitting, crochet, spinning and much more. If you're a wannabe artist or crafter, Liddelow Homestead is definitely the place to be.

An upcoming event that local art-lovers definitely won't want to miss is Liddelow Homestead's next open day, which will be held on Saturday, March 14 from 10.00am until 4.00pm. Throughout the day members will hold demonstrations of various art-forms, so it will be a rare opportunity to observe local artists and craftspeople at work, ask questions and maybe (if you're lucky) even try some of the techniques yourself. Perhaps you'll gain the inspiration to take up a hobby that has always interested you but that you've never had the confidence to try.

Alternatively, whether it's a unique gift for a special person that you're looking for, or a beautiful one-of-a-kind work of art to adorn your own home, Liddelow Homestead has a small gift-shop where you can purchase gorgeous locally-made arts and craft. These days, there is a huge interest in quality handmade products, as can be seen in the popularity of Perth's designer markets, and many of the artists who work at Liddelow are considered to be Western Australia's most experienced and talented.

In conclusion, if you love the arts either making your own or admiring the work of others then be sure to mark Liddelow Homestead Art and Craft Centre's next open day into your social calendar. Whether you want to watch the centre's gifted artisans at work, purchase something special or simply relax in the gardens and socialise, this great community event is the place to be. If you get hungry or thirsty, refreshments will also be available for purchase.
