Our Resident’s Talents: woodwork and painting
The list of our resident’s talents is quite long. Every day across our Villages there are arts and crafts being perfected, wood being sculpted, quilts being designed – the list goes on. Here’s a small sample of some of the amazing work made by you. Thanks to all our artists!
Woodwork at Centro
Barry, Don and Bob welcomed us into the work shed with open arms and big smiles. The three have been regulars since they moved in and would love to see more of their neighbours coming down to try their hand at woodwork.
“We’re here to help, whether it’s show you how to do something or fix a broken item,” Barry says.
Between the three of them, there are many wonderful items they have created for their homes or for friends and family. Pictured are a few of each of our resident’s talents.

Art at Mandurah
Heading down south to find more of our resident’s talents, we found ourselves at our Mandurah Village. Two years ago Rita started art tuition for absolute beginners (no drawing ability was required). Four people enrolled and their work is pictured here.
“It took a while for members to understand techniques but after time it all clicked into place. The hardest was showing colour balance and proportions in relation to canvas sizes!” Rita says.
To find out more about the activities on offer at each of our Villages, please visit their page on our website. From arts and crafts to lawn bowls, aqua aerobics to tai chi, there’s something for everyone. The best part of the activity calendar is that you can choose to do as much, or as little, as you like!
