A new event designed to bring together and showcase arts and crafts from throughout the Kaipara District will be held at a rural property near Kaiwaka on Sunday, June 3.
The Kaipara Arts Fair is being organised by Beth Stone and will be held at her Valley Vista Eco Retreat, off Baldrock Road. She says the idea is to have a great day out, with artists exhibiting and selling their wares, plus music, performance art and refreshments.
“Kaipara is quite a geographically large and diverse area with a small population, but there are a lot of people into various art forms and there hasn’t really been a venue to bring them all together,” Beth says.
“We have a stunning holiday park and thought we’ve probably got the place and space to do that, and in a beautiful setting, too.”
Beth is hoping the fair will feature all kinds of art including painting, sculpture, jewellery, metalwork and woodwork, and she is open to ideas. She would also like to hear from anyone who might be willing to help organise the event.
