Update – Gem Fest and Cheesemaking

July 9, 2015

Don’t forget it is Gem Fest at the Village this Saturday, July 11th.  It is $5 (under 16 years free)  to enter and enjoy the fun of GemFest!!!  There’ll be jewellery sales, displays, tailgaters, demonstrations, padidary, children’s fossicking, raffles and more.  Food and refreshments available.

The Caboolture Gem Club has a great record of success with many wins in the recent Caboolture Show – the winning entries are on display at the Village.   See the front page of Caboolture Herald – with President Paul Futcher on the cover!  Click here.

Do come along and speak with the members who are enjoying great success with their work and learn about how you can join the club and start learning to make your own items.  The Club operates within the Village, with its own club rooms and training rooms, so that members can learn  from the experienced senior members of the club.  Often special guests attend the village to help expand on the knowledge of members.

Children love the gem seiving – it is one of the many activities that school children have available to them during school excursions to the Village.
