Creative types rejoice as your next craft festival is around the corner with Penrith Panthers hosting an exhibition of all things paper in the club's marquee. From stencilling to quilling and paper tole, every paper craft you could possibly think of will be represented here.

Whether you're a devotee of scrapbooking, stamping and card making or looking for your next hobby, there's something to learn or take away from this event. New products from colour blast paste to embossing powders, free demonstrations, craft software, and the latest trends and creative techniques will be on display.

Get ideas and inspiration from over 40 exhibits, do a make 'n' take, catch up with like-minded friends, grab some food and refreshments, snap up prizes and giveaways. All the tools you'll need are available along with starter kits and some great bargains to be had.

Fantastic new and innovative workshops await you, including the ancient art of Origami where you make beautiful butterflies and Kusudama flowers, Asian folding fans and Paperstring craft where you make a koala magnet. These will need to be booked and range from $15-25. Other mini classes are available that don't need booking, just visit stands early as seats are limited. Children are not left out with specially designed workshops and activities for them.

DIY craft machines will allow you to create cut outs, etch, sketch, emboss and deboss whilst the new 'in' thing of adult colouring books will entice you back to your childhood. I hear people are using these books to relax and de-stress.

Sketch artist Kim Wang from Visual Harbour will capture memories for you, drawing either a realistic portrait or cartoon caricature of you, depending on your preference.

So if you're paper crazy put pen, paint and perfume to it and create something precious to look back on. It's not only a work of art but a work of heart.

Craftaholics, this event is on from 10am each day with entry at $10. Committed husbands and children under 14 are free. Parking included.

Happy Crafting.
