We all know you will have to wear your craziest and most outrageous hat to this event. So get your creative juices running and begin creating your own original hat. Not just for kids, adults should join in the fun too.
Ideas for making a thoroughly mad hat: Rummage through the spare room for an old unused hat you can paint, paste, attach all of your favourite things. Old toys, feathers, glitter, cards, plastic tea cup and saucer are a few adornments you can use. Let your imagination run riot and buy some card board and make something completely weird and wacky. Anything goes at a Mad Hatters tea party.
Seats are limited and bookings essential. Phone 8536 5700 to make a booking.
Cost $15 per person
Free event: Look! The Art of Australian Picture Books Today Shows original works from over 40 Australian picture book illustrators includes 112 original artworks. Finished artworks, sketches, drafts and mock ups. Children will see how pictures tell a story and understand more about their world. It will certainly spark their imagination and create greater interest in reading books. Why not continue the learning and get them to write and illustrate their own book at home.
These two activities run from Monday 2nd to Friday 13th July.
Story Time is an activity beginning at 10am each day where children will be taken for a magical journey into story land by a magical story reader. Followed by an interactive creative art activity within the Gallery. This should be loads of fun.
Kid's Films are held at 1pm each day except Friday 6th July.
Held in the Hazelhurst Theatrette a collection of family favourites will be shown. This will keep the kids entertained and quiet for a while and so much more fun being around other children, imagine the joys of laughter.
Adults can join them or sit in the coffee shop for a bit of quiet time, explore the artworks in the Gallery on their own or sit in the beautiful gardens and read a book of their own.
