Mural-art and craft day at Burnside
The Burnside community is being treated to a family day of festive fun and activities this weekend (Sunday 10 March).
The Burnside Mural-Art and Craft Display, hosted by the Burnside Elim Community Church and the Christchurch City Council, is a community event offering something for everyone, including a free brunch!
A highlight will be the chance to see legal art in action with the painting of a mural on a wall of the Burnside Elim Community Church.
Sharon Williams, the Christchurch City Council legal art co-ordinator, has been working with members of the Burnside Elim Church and local youth to produce a mural on the north wall of the building.
The artists involved, Jonny Wartmann and Adam Mete, are specialist aerosol artists. The design, which focuses on the community, has been discussed with the church committee.
Other artistic highlights will include a ‘Chalk-on-Seal” competition and face painting. People will also have the chance to see craftwork in action including canvas painting, woodturning, quilting, pottery making and model aeroplane making.
The crowds will be entertained by light jazz, Rap and a cultural dance. During all the fun and great entertainment, people can recharge their energy levels by enjoying a free barbecue and ethnic food.The event, which runs from 11.45am – 3pm, is being held in the car park of the Burnside Elim Community Church, next to the Waimairi Cemetery, 193 Grahams Road.
