Donnybrook’s Central Arcade and main street will explode with colour next month when the Colour in all it’s Glory exhibition opens.

Aimed at local artisans and first time exhibitors, Central Arcade will be transformed into a colourful oasis when 84 exhibits are set up and run between September 7 and September 21.

Event coordinator Claire Connolly said the arcade would be filled with colour with artisans from all over the Bunbury Geographe region welcome to take part.

“It’s an opportunity to bring arts and crafts in the region to everybody,” she said.

Committee member Colleen Castledine added the event would also help promote Donnybrook to the wider region.

Not only will the arcade come to life, South Western Highway will receive a colourful make over during the two week exhibition with the trees lining main street to be adorned in vibrant pieces of free-formed hyperbolic crochet.

The event will run between September 7 and September 21 and the exhibition will be officially launched on September 6 by Forrest MHR Nola Marino and Donnybrook-Balingup shire president Brian Piesse.

“Every morning and afternoon there will be demonstrations and the odd free workshop for the public to enjoy,” Mrs Connolly said.

“There will be loads of things to see.”
