Hit the Granite Belt Art and Craft Trail

Enjoy an immersive arts and crafts experience with the region’s best artisans.

The Granite Belt Art and Craft Trail is an opportunity to meet the region’s artisans, buy their art and learn some of the skills that go into their artistry.  

The weekend starts on Friday 29 October with an opening night show, Fresh Canvas, at Stanthorpe Showgrounds.

The Granite Belt’s Teri Welles brings her own brand of musical magic to the popular Jazzify band at GBART’s special dinner, Fresh Canvas.

With diverse musical and life experience, the band puts its own spin on jazz, blues, popular, classic, swing and rock songs, plus a few originals. 

Guests will also enjoy the food of highly regarded local chef Jason Costanzo.

Tickets must be pre-purchased from the GBART website.

The following day it’s time to get back on the trail and explore the works of more than 25 of the region’s artisans across multiple locations.

Visitors can wander through exhibitions admiring the artistic creativity of others, talk to the artists, see how they work and discover what drew them to their artistic endeavours.

There will be opportunities to try your hand at a variety of artistic fields and learn new techniques. 

Free demonstrations, paid workshops and exhibitions will take place during the event. 

All must be pre-booked through the website.

Visitors can learn more about fine arts, textiles, candles, cards, pottery, soaps, metal art, sculpture, jewellery, cheesemaking and glass pouring.
