‘The cards we’ve made this year are the best yet I reckon,’ says Pat, a member of our Coolibah day centre for seniors.
Over the past few years she and other Coolibah members have refined their talents with ink and paper, and created some stunning images, which are featured on these glossy greeting cards – perfect to use as Christmas cards for family and friends, or to be given as gifts over the festive season.
Many Coolibah members – including Selwyn, Pat and Kevin pictured here – took part in workshops with volunteer artists to create the images, and a selection of the finest work was chosen to be printed on the cards.
Pat says she was always too busy as a wife and mother to explore her creative talents, and really enjoys the chance to pursue this side of herself through art and craft activities at the Coolibah.
Selwyn agrees with Pat that their work is getting better and better each year as they refine their skills.
The cards come in a box set of 12 for $25.99, and are available for sale by contacting Coolibah Manager, Marica Cindric on (03) 9483 1302 or by email mcindric(at)bsl.org.au
