Okines Community House Term 4, 2021

Here we are, already in Term 4 with the year flying by. Heaps of events and activities to look forward to at Okines over the next few months leading up to Christmas.  We have Seniors Week activities starting next week, the Soirees are back in the garden, cooking classes, meditation, dancing, and lots more.

Okines will be closed over the Christmas period commencing Friday 24th of December 2021 (last day of opening will be Thursday 23rd) and we will be returning Monday 10th of January 2022. The Board and Staff of Okines Community House, Garden, Food Co-op, Film Society and Bike Shed would like to thank the community for their ongoing support and enthusiastic participation in our activities. A special thank you to our wonderful volunteers for the many hours that they have contributed throughout the year. It would not be possible to achieve all that we do without your involvement.

It is no exaggeration to say that Term Four, 2021 Okines Newsletter is another bumper issue. Hot off the press, it is packed full of information about what has been happening around the house as well as upcoming activities.  If you would like to be on the newsletter emailing list please let us know via info@nullokinescommunityhouse.com.au otherwise you can enjoy reading a copy here.

***A late entry that didn’t make it into our newsletter but we are very pleased to tell you about is an upcoming Lampshade Making Workshop on the 18th of December 2021 (just in time to create a wonderful gift for Christmas). Annie Giffard leads a relaxed small group where you will be provided with the steps, materials and tools needed to create a new, magnificent lampshade for ceiling or a lamp base.

What you will get out of the workshop:

– learn a new creative skill

– be inspired and refurb all your home shades

– create a handmade gift

– Enhance your existing talents

– Learn the skills and start a business

Most importantly, have lots of fun!! Your tutor Annie is also passionate about conscious living, if you have a shade at home you would love to refurbish, bring it along for show and tell and Annie will give you some tips and tricks on how to upcycle your old shades. Likewise with any bases that need beautifying. Please consider recycling a piece of fabric. 

No prior skills required, cost for the one day workshop is $120.

What is Interplay?
InterPlay is a playful way of connecting with others, expressing your true self and allowing your creativity to unfurl in a nurturing environment. Gently led by Pippa Ross, Interplay leader and accredited silly person.

At the Workshop you will be invited to move your body in ways you've never thought of; laugh, be still, play with your voice, jump, babble, tell simple stories. Guaranteed to unlock your creativity. It is held in a totally nurturing & nonthreatening way. Open to anyone over 16 years old.
•Is it performance? No, it's play!
•Will I be put on the spot?
Never! We make sure of that.
•Do I need to have a certain type of body?
Just the one you've got. .
•What if I'm very shy? Great!
Good for shy violets AND total showoffs.
•What do you do exactly?
We use our voices and our bodies to
create stories, songs, to communicate in
ways you've never experienced before.
•Will I laugh?
Guaranteed, or your money back.
•What if I'm not very creative?
Ha, that's what you think, wait till you experience InterPlay.
•What does it cost? Whatever you want to give on a sliding How do Iscale from $10 to $20. We don't ever let money get in the way of something as important as play...
