The Hawkesbury Community Arts Workshop would like to acknowledge with appreciation the generosity of the Bendigo Bank. They made donations to help fund the replacement of our very aged & no longer working kilns. Their grants have helped make possible the purchase of these much needed items & ensure the ongoing viability of our various weekly ceramic classes with Hawkesbury residents, those in aged care & also disabled adults. We are very thankful
It was decided to hold our Annual Exhibition this year at the CWA cottage in Windsor, and to have it coincide with the 'World Polo Championship' being held in Richmond, the 'Maquarie Towns Art Society spring Fair' and the 'Sydney Blues and Roots Festival' in Windsor... unfortunately the Blues and Roots Festival was cancelled, but we may try to combine our exhibition with it next year.
Graham Swain AM, officially opened the Exhibition. Graham help found the Hawkesbury Community Arts Workshop in 1978 when he was Vice Chancellor of the then Hawkesbury Agricultural College and remains a patron of the Arts Workshop.
In his speech he recounted some of the history of the Workshop up to the present and the newly signed agreement with the Western Sydney University.

The Piggery Lane Studios, (part of the Hawkesbury Community Arts Workshop) was visited today by a busload of about 55 seniors... and they seemed to enjoy their time and had lots positive comments... we are linking in with our neighbours from the Hawkesbury Earthcare Centre and hope to make this a rewarding destination for more visits in the future.
