Sock fun at Coal Creek
MAKING soft toy monsters from socks appealed to creative minds at Coal Creek Community Park and Museum, Korumburra, last Thursday.
Bradley Simon Denney from Korumburra goes along most weeks to the school holiday activities run at Coal Creek.
“There is always something different,” he said as he was in the process of turning a harmless sock into a something else totally.
Adam Lyman from Kensington in inner city Melbourne was on holidays in Inverloch with his parents when he discovered the Coal Creek school holiday program. He too thought it sounded like good creative fun.
“Why not come and try something you never knew existed!” Bradley said.
Most of the sessions last for two and a half hours, sometimes a little longer and the convenor, Owen Top said he sets up for a maximum group size of 10 so it was also a good chance to make new friends in a small group setting.
The event was held ahead of the much anticipated GeekFest this Saturday, January 16 at Coal Creek.
Come along for Minecraft, role playing, Cosplay, competitions, workshops and Steampunk from 10am to 4.30pm.
There will be a chance to paint and take home miniatures, play floor games and take part in the AnimeLab.
See The Star Queen live show, a Star Wars drag show that will explore classic moments from the films and feature spectacular costumes.
Alison Goodman will teach a Regency and Victorian finishing dance, plus there will be table top games, stall holders and a medieval display.
Workshops will inspire, with such presenters as model maker Craig Fision, animator Shaun Freeman and author Alison Goodman, or take part in a makeup workshop.
In the evening, don’t miss the Kostume Ball and dance to geeky music by DJ Hemphill.
