Got a hankering to scratch your artistic side? Then you might wanna check out these workshops being run by
Blacktown Outdoors Group at Chippendale's Pine St Arts Centre.
The group has been successful in its application for funding to run free pottery classes for PLWHA, culminating in an
exhibition at St. Vincent's Hospital for World AIDS Day (Nov 26). Lynne WELCH (LAPS) from the City of Sydney Council
also gave the group the good news that they had received a matching grant to run the classes at Pine St. The rst
workshops will start on July 29. The class will be an opportunity to learn pottery, as well as to meet new friends in a
fun and relaxed atmosphere. BOG proudly supports our diverse community, and we believe this activity will make a
difference. The class will be suitable to all levels of ability.

Kander and Ebb of Chicago fame. Expect the musical
genre to be tipped on its head.
