Bass Coast,

Creative Festival Coming To A Close


There is only one more week left to enjoy the the exchange of art and ideas in Bass Coast!

The Creative Gippsland Arts Festival has been running for the entire month of May, with eleven studios and galleries open for the final weekend of the month in Cowes, Newhaven, San Remo, Bass, Anderson, Wonthaggi and Inverloch.

Bass Coast Shire Council Mayor, Cr Kimberley Brown, said people can map their creative journey this weekend by using the brochure available from or Council’s Visitor Information and Customer Information Centres.

“On Sunday, 31 May you can catch up with others for a BYO lunch at Goat Island Gallery from 1.15pm,” Cr Brown said.

“The Bass to Inverloch Art Tour is also being held again on Sunday, 31 May, with all the details included in the Bass Coast Creative Gippsland Arts Festival brochure.”

Cr Brown said workshops held on 16 and 17 May had a fantastic response from the community and visitors.

“Regina Dudek at the Inverloch Hub instructed in the use of working with wire and participants made 2D and 3D pieces,” Cr Brown said.

“A singing workshop held by Jane Coker at the Wonthaggi Citizens Band room needed no music reading skills or great voices, with the singers choosing the range that they felt comfortable participating in and the result being gutsy, uplifting songs that made voices soar and hearts sing!

“The singing workshop then introduced a strum session, where ukuleles and guitars were added too.”
