Tyalgum Village Australia Day 2018!

On Friday 26th January, Tyalgum Village joins in the Australia Day celebrations with a wonderful programme. Please put the date in your diary and join with family and friends to make this Australia Day a special day here in our beautiful village.

The day will commence with the traditional Street Parade at 9.30 am. All community organisations, businesses, school groups and individuals are encouraged to participate. Make a float or march, dress up in your best Aussie-themed outfits. Prizes awarded to best decorated floats and children’s bikes. Every child with a decorated bike will receive a paddle pop or a delicious gelato.
Everyone is encouraged to gather at the Tyalgum Hall for the formal part of the day from 10am, which will include an Acknowledgement of Country by the traditional custodians. The Tyalgum Public School captains will make an address and raise the flag as we sing the National Anthem.
Australia Day awards will be presented inside the Hall, to recognise members of our community who have made a significant contribution to Tyalgum Village. Morning tea will be provided followed by a sing-a-long, while children’s activities are held outside.
There is a great buzz of anticipation in the air with the ‘double wicket cricket comp’ to be played on Bruce Bartrim Oval commencing at 11.30 am. The cricket is open to men, women and young people. Teams of two will be drawn from a hat. Each team will bat and bowl 2 overs per player. Eleven fielders. A cricket ball is used. The game can cater for 30+ players.

    Learn the basics of silversmithing in a relaxed, country setting here in Tyalgum, northern NSW. During the course of the day you will become familiar with the fundamental tools of the trade, learn how to cut, saw, anneal, solder, texture and finish two rings, which will be yours to keep! This is a comprehensive workshop covering a lot of theory and practical issues when learning the craft of silversmithing. Workshops run from 10am until 4pm on a Saturday, and are for up to six students, to allow for individualised tuition. Full payment is required upon booking to secure your place. $165 tuition fee, includes all use of tools and materials. Student Reviews: "An excellent course for learning some basic skills. Kirra is very good at sharing her skills and experience in the craft. While you do cover the basic principles/theory, most of the class is hands-on. Very enjoyable & good value for those wanting to dip their toes into silversmithing. I would definitely recommend it." - Rebecca "I got to this beautiful little shop / studio & waiting was Kirra. She was so welcoming & warm. The class had 7 people in it but Kirra made sure each person was on the right track. She was very informative about everything any question was answered & she made sure we all had fun while learning. The highlight of the class was being able to feel comfortable leading a new skill in a room of strangers & leave feeling like you knew what you were doing while having fun with some amazing new people." - Beth "I took my 12 year old son and his friend as a birthday gift and it was wonderful. Kirra is a wonderful sharer of her knowledge and skills. We all made wonderful pieces that we'll treasure always." - Genevieve
