THE crafts group at Broadford Living and Learning Centre, BLLC, is welcoming women to come join them for a craft open day afternoon tea on March 17 in recognition of International Women’s Day,

BLLC’s Chris Hollingworth said the craft open day provided an opportunity to both celebrate women and bring the community together post COVID-19.

“We want to celebrate women in our community and do that in a way that everyone feels welcomed and comfortable to be a part of,” Ms Hollingworth said.

Attendees will have the opportunity to gain new craft skills and meet some of the wonderful women in Broadford and surrounding towns.

The crafts group is a regular activity at BLLC, and Ms Hollingworth said it was excited about welcoming new members both at the open day, and possibly in the future.

“The crafts group is a pre-existing group of women and we’re opening it to the general public … as we want to encourage as many women as we can to come along,” she said.

“The community really want to re-engage after COVID-19 and this is a perfect opportunity for women to meet with one another.”

Ms Hollingworth said interest for the event had already been impressive, with only few spots available left for the open day.

“Our celebration of women is proving to be a popular event with limited spots available, however we do have a waitlist for those who miss out [on a spot initially],” she said.

To secure a spot or join the waitlist, call Ms Hollingworth at the BLLC on 5784 4006.

People can call discuss the regular timetable for the crafts group if they are interested in joining, or to find out about other programs ran at BLLC.
