WHAT'S ON: The inaugural Noosa Open Studios 3 day event
AS preparations for the inaugural Noosa Open Studios 3 day event in August gets to the 'pointy end', the organisers have just released the details and schedules for their Studios Bus Tours.
The event's Operations Co-ordinator, Dave Gilbert explained "It has taken some considerable time and research to compile all of these studio bus tours as we have artists studios open from the Eastern Beaches to Noosa North Shore, from Noosa Heads to Eumundi, from Boreen Point to Kin Kin and from Tinbeerwah to Cooroy."
30 Studios in all with over 40 artists and artisans are opening their own personal creative space to the public.
The Noosa Open Studios buses shall visit all of them with 10 different tours happening morning and afternoon over the three days. And each tour costing only $10 per person.
You can pick up the bus in Hastings Street, Gympie Tce or in Wallace Drive at Wallace House - 'The Hub' for the event.
At 'The Hub' there will be representative works of all the participating artists, a 30 minute video and a PopUp Café run by local identity Judy Chipperfield of 'Two Old Ladies Tea Rooms' Pomona fame.
Also at The Hub the Wallace House Ceramic Group shall have their studio open and outside under the spreading trees shall be a true 'open' studio with a natural fibre weaver showcasing her talents.
"I'd suggest perhaps the best location to hop onto the bus tour for locals would be at Wallace House where there is plenty of parking adjacent and at the start or end of the tour you can stay awhile and enjoy Judy's beautiful homemade refreshments" added Dave.
