Celebrating Wellington Heritage Week

Wellington Heritage & Vintage Retro Fair

Once again we are thrilled to be involved with Wellington Heritage week.   
On Sunday October 3, between 10am and 3pm, both St Christopher’s and the Village Hall in Seatoun will be a hive of activity.

Wander through St Christopher’s church, designed by William Fielding in the Romanesque Revival style and built in 1932. Marvel at the unique stained glass windows and the original features.
Between 11.00am – 12pm in the church, embroidery artist Cathrine Lloyd will talk about the inspiration and the historical embroidery techniques used in her exhibition, The Disappearing Woman. Inspired by Surrealism, her work is full of twists that disrupt expectations and refashions the familiar into something from a dream. Have a closer look at some of her intricate and inspiring work.

Next door in the hall we are bringing together some of the finest crafters from around Wellington who not only display their heritage crafts but will be working on their ongoing work. There will be an opportunity to try things for yourself and gain some tips from these experienced crafters.
The crafts in action include embroidery, lacemaking, tatting, spinning and weaving and more. Closer to the time we will provide more details.

At the same time in the Village Hall there will be stalls selling a wide variety of good quality vintage and retro clothing, homewares and curios.

From 2pm come and listen to the Scots College Jazz Band play. These talented musicians will end a marvellous day with some fabulous tunes.

We look forward to seeing you.
