IT’S not every day you can see and buy quality home-made items, all created by locals.

Evans Arts Council has co-ordinated the second of its annual exhibitions, the 2016 Craft, Photographic and Flower Exhibition and Sale.

The three sections previously had their own dedicated exhibitions, but the council decided it was best to combine them.

President Wendy-Lou Tisdell said 50 items had been entered in the craft category and 60 in the photographic category, while the flower section is still to be determined. Hundreds more pieces not entered in the competition will be on sale.

“We also have a display of things done in our workshops,” Ms Tisdell said.

Among the items in the exhibition are hand-painted silk scarves, cards, blankets, jewellery and dolls.

“If you can’t come along and find a prezzie to buy for someone, then you are not looking hard enough,” Ms Tisdell said.

The Craft, Photographic and Flower Exhibition and Sale will officially open at 10.30am on Saturday in the Senior Citizen Centre in Russell Street.

The exhibition will be open to the public until 4pm on Saturday and between 10am and 2pm on Sunday.
