01.07.2018 – Arts, Crafts & a Cuppa – Nelson Bay, New South Wales

On our walk past the pop-up markets on Shoal Bay Road, at Cultural Close, we discovered a large building containing an Art & Craft Gallery, with a diverse display which is updated every six weeks.

Outside the gallery, under a verandah, the garden café overlooks a terraced garden with mosaic ‘stepping stones’ leading to a Fairy Garden at the top. Sculptures and art decorate the garden. Lee loved the mosaic on show on the wall of the café of bright flowers and made as a collective piece by the mosaic class.  If feeling cool, one could take advantage of the knitted and crocheted lap rugs and shawls left folded over many of the seats.
