The awesome community arts project, Homespun, coordinated by the Ravensthorpe Regional Arts Council was officially opened by Dr Graham Jacobs in the Ravensthorpe Town Hall on Sunday afternoon, 8th September.

All those who attended enjoyed a delicious High Tea whilst wandering around the fabulous crochet flower displays.  Brave tea drinkers saved their tea leaves to be read by the mysterious "Madam Boumdeaire."

Enjoy these photos from the event!
