Big plans for My Sisters’ Kitchen

The Monday night My Sisters' Kitchen (MSK) program has become a wonderful place for exchange of all sorts of tactile arts and crafts practices. Over the past few months we've welcomed many friends sharing their crafts. We've learnt how to weave rag rugs, knit with material scraps, bead and sew all sorts of outfits - baby clothes, dresses, skirts, shirts, aprons and even a ball gown have been started. The children have been busy making toys from recycled materials.

Volunteer and give back to your community

Would you like to meet new people and give back to your community? We have lots of volunteering opportunities available! Agnes (pictured right) is our newest volunteer. Agnes is a textile artist and professional hobby photographer and she is willing to share her skills and help Darwin Community Arts' programs.

Underground Arts in Malak every Saturday

Underground Arts wishes to thank our recent visiting artist Caroline Margaret for her participation in our Saturday Morning Program, she shared many skills and donated her fantastic paintings and curious cacti to help us raise money for future art activities. If you are looking for a unique gift for someone special, come and see us in the Underground. During October we also had a local artist Judi Fischer share her watercolour know-how. Thank you lovely ladies for your time and enthusiasm. In November we will be finalising the paver steps in readiness for the garden path.
