For the Love of Arts and Craft
The SHAC Gallery is doing Christmas differently this year, we’d love everyone to be involved.
After the year we’ve had we felt we all deserve a break, and thought we’d extend Christmas celebrations from December right through January.
And we’d like you to help us celebrate!
Rather than have the traditional Christmas Gallery Show, we thought we should reflect what the SHAC is about for this period – the best of the best of our wonderful Southern Highlands Artisans and Makers.
The SHAC is the ‘go to’ place during December for that extra special present, or your own amazing reward, so are inviting the best of the best to take a space in the SHAC Gallery and the Annex at The SHAC.
