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.
