Experience. Smithton Library is hosting a free festival celebrating learning.

A fun and interactive calendar of events will begin on Monday (September 3), when local face painter Emma Berechree takes locals for a colourful class.

The local artist, of Splash Face and Body Art, will give an overview of the quality products to use when face painting as well as basic techniques and designs. The class begins at 10am.

On Tuesday (September 4) join Josie Riches for a basket making class from 10.30am.

You will use old fishing ropes that have washed up on the beaches of Tasmania to create your recycled basket. This event ties in with Circular Head Council’s Art About Town.

On Wednesday (September 5) Emma Bruce of Provenance Kitchen will have cupcakes for others to test out their cake decorating and piping skills, while showing some techniques. The class begins at 2pm.

On Thursday (September 6) get your journal and diary making up to scratch with a class guided by Shobhna Chetty, at 11am. Create and customise your memories using scrapbooking techniques for a personalised journal.

On Friday (September 7) join mechanic Richard Haines at 11am for a demonstration on how to look after your vehicle and keep it in top condition. Find out which checks to do weekly and monthly to keep you safe on the road.

The events are being held during Adult Learners’ Week, an international celebration of lifelong learning.

“I think challenging ourselves is what makes life interesting,” says Emma Bruce on always learning. “Happiness comes from challenging ourself and succeeding.”

All events are held at the Nelson Street library. Bookings are essential, so get in quick by calling the Smithton Library on 6478 9574 or email smithton.library@education.tas.gov.au.
