We've held 4 events, funded 4 projects and we're stoked!
Ozone Walk Mural by Jimmi Buscombe
Local artist Jimmi Buscombe presenting his idea to paint a flock of Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoos spanning the whole length of Ozone Walk at our very first event night in October 2017. I'm not sure Jimmi quite understood the mammoth task he had signed up for, but the community got behind Jimmi offering helping hands, resources and extra funding to make it possible. During March 2018 the flock came to life and it has added even more spark to the dynamic laneway.
Family Yoga with the Warrnambool Yoga Project
After winning the vote at Beers and Ideas Round 2, in December 2017, Peta, Cherie, Jane and Zoe get straight to work putting together a program of free family yoga days. Every Saturday morning in January, rain, hail or intense shine, the yogis were joined by a crowd of balanced bodies and smiles as they led these fun classes.
The Warrnambool Yoga Project used Beers and Ideas as a spring board to launch their group, who have gone on to host other wonderful yoga events and put together a much needed directory of yoga classes for Warrnambool and Port Fairy.
Sewing Station by Brenda O'Connor
The station will give the community the opportunity to learn to sew at various workshops, with the focus on making "Boomerang Bags", a recycled material alternative to single use plastic bags. Brenda has even sourced some single use cloth from South West Health Care to use that would otherwise go into landfill.
The Sewing Station will open at 102 Liebig Street on Tuesday 12th of June at 10am. A 2 week program of workshops will follow from Tuesday – Saturday. Check our the Sewing Station website (link below) to view the schedule and book your place.
