As the frosty chill of winter sets in, locals are invited to settle in at Camperdown’s ‘A Winter Hearth’ exhibition to warm their souls.

The exhibition was launched at the Camperdown Court House Information and Arts (CCHIA) centre this week and celebrates the more cosy aspects of the season.

CCHIA member Pat Robertson said textiles and woodwork from local artists are prominent features of the exhibition.

“We have some particularly impressive felting works on show,” she said.

“There are felt scarves, handbags and even a stole which have some great designs on them.”

Handmade quilt hangings from the Clocktower Quilters, art glass bowls, platters and jewellery and hand-knitted goods also feature.

“We even have some really unique woodwork pieces – bowls, scented jars, spinning top and even tooth fairy containers,” Mrs Robertson said.

“The great thing is that we have a range of goods to suit all budgets, from small trinkets through to some very intricate creations.

“Everyone really appreciates the eclectic and unique nature of the works on show.”

Mrs Robertson said the CCHIA continues to be a successful initiative.

“Not only are we helping a growing number of visitors make the best of their stay locally, we’re also providing a great space for artists to display and sell their works,” she said.

The information and arts centre now boasts a roster of 70 volunteers who man the facility on a daily basis.
