Gorgeous masks available

Saturday night at the Gathering is the Silver Masquerade Gala Dinner.

The theme is ‘Frock Up’ in honour of our guest speakers, ‘The Dressmaker‘ author Rosalie Ham and producer Sue Maslin.

As the dinner is a masquerade we encourage all attendees to complete your outfits with a gorgeous mask – bring one from home, make one at the mask-decorating workshop on Saturday afternoon, or buy one from the trade stall at the Gathering. The photos below are a small sample of the range of gorgeous masks that will be available on the day.

Care Packs for Women in Need

Many of us take for granted the hygiene products we use every day, but for women who are homeless or seeking safety in domestic violence shelters, these products can be hard to access. At this year’s Gathering we will have a collection point set up for donated hygiene products which will be given to shelters in the region for women who need them.

Donations of individual items are welcome, or you might like to make up personalized care packs containing all the necessaries for one person for a month. A small number of pre-assembled care packs will be available for $10 each, if you would like to contribute but have limited luggage space.
