Karori Arts & Crafts Centre is celebrating its 45th Anniversary in 2012. In May 1967 Jean Blennerhassett called a special meeting for people interested in forming the society. Back then there were 17 members and they used to meet in each other’s garages, church halls and anywhere that they could find to get together to chat and create. By comparison there are now around 350 members.
In 1993, the Newman Centre was built due to a legacy left by Dorothy and Stanley Newman. It is still humming with many activities such as painting, drawing, embroidery, quilting, card making, bookmaking, photography and more. There are also other activities such as mah jong, garden roup, walking group, book lovers... The centre is also hired to like-minded groups. Some regularly and some occasionally.
From 30th June to 7th July KACC will be running its annual art & photography exhibition. Most of the art works will be for sale at very reasonable prices. Open 10am – 4pm daily. Entry is free so why not pop in and have a look!
