Your guide to Kingaroy Winter Craft Festival

THROUGHOUT June and July, the Kingaroy Regional Art Gallery is hosting its annual Queensland Winter Craft Festival.

It will be a huge two months for the art gallery as it will have numerous exhibitions running along with daily workshops.

The exhibitions are being run by South Burnett craft groups.

For June the two exhibitions are: Farm to Fashion by Alpaca Collective in the main gallery, and Not Your Granny's Mats by Judi Tompkins in galleries two and three.

In the art gallery corridor you will find Textile Art Wall-Hangings by Bec Andersen.
