Denise Faulkner - NEW WORKS

Saturday 20 April - Monday 13 May
10 a.m. - 5.00 p.m.
Milk Factory Building, 33 Station Street
E. shirley@milkfactorygallery.com.au

Trading the city life for a small bush block just outside Mudgee, Denise Faulkner finds enjoyment observing the local birds as they flit and chatter. What began as a documentation of local species, has now developed into a playful exploration of the inquisitive personalities of the native birds. The bold flash of red from a visiting rosella is a familiar sight for many Australians enjoying a cup of tea. Faulkner then positions the birds in amongst Victorian porcelain an imagined setting that speaks to the charm of small birds, inviting themselves around for a cuppa.
Denise will be exhibiting recent and new bird paintings in the Pop-Up Gallery over the Easter holidays and through to mid-May.

In Germany, where it originated, it is known as “Waldtherapie”, in Japan it is called “Shinrin-yoku” (森林浴) or “Shinrin-ryōhō (森林療法)”, in Korea it is referred to as “Sanlimyok (산림욕)” and in China and Taiwan people call it “Sēnlín liáofǎ (森林療法)”. Here in Australia the practice is known as forest bathing, shinrin yoku, or forest or nature therapy.

Wildfest is delighted to welcome Christie Little to run our forest bathing sessions. She was the first internationally certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide in NSW and is also certified and experienced in mindfulness, biofeedback, positive neuroplasticity training, nutrition and permaculture.

Joadja Distillery

Saturday 20 - Monday 22 April
10am-4pm
1760 Joadja Road Joadja NSW 2575
PH. 02 4871 1054

Joadja Distillery is located in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, Australia. The town of Joadja was established in the late 1870’s by the Australian Kerosene Oil and Mineral Co. and the hundreds of Scottish oil shale miners who brought with them their skills in the mining and retorting technique… and the stilling and brewing of “sly grog”.

The Scottish heritage in the valley and the history of "sly grog" has inspired the Jimenez family who currently own and manage Joadja Town, to establish Joadja Distillery in 2014. The Jimenez family has also tapped into their own Spanish heritage and have sourced ex-Oloroso and ex-Pedro Ximenez butts from Spain to mature their Whisky. These barrels are historically known to be the types of barrels that the Scots consider the best to mature whisky and we are lucky enough to have the Spanish language and connection to be able to source and ship them to Australia and fill them with our own Australia made malt spirit.

Visit the cellar door where you will experience how we harness nature’s ingredients to produce a truly unique Australian Whisky and have a wee tasting of our Joadja Wee Heavy Scottish Ale while we wait for our whisky to mature. With fully guided tours on offer, a café on site and the opportunity to visit a site of world heritage significance, Joadja is a great day out, so bring everyone and experience it for yourself! Tours of Joadja Town by appointment or on scheduled "Open Days". Visit www.joadjatown.com.au for more details.

Don't forget to visit our Joadja Town website to find out a little bit more about Joadja Town heritage tours, the history of the valley and the influence the town had on the area in its peak. You get the opportunity to tour this fantastic historical site while you're visiting the distillery.....

COMPANY

Friday 3 - Saturday 18 May
Cnr Main St & Bowral Rd Mittagong
E. pigsflyproductions@hotmail.com

A Stephen Sondheim classic! On the night of his 35th birthday, Robert, confirmed bachelor, struggles to think of a wish to make as he blows out his birthday candles. The lone bachelor, surrounded by “those good and crazy people”, his married friends. Robert is uncertain whether he should simply be happy with his lot or whether he should wish for his own romantic partner. Over a series of dinner parties, first dates, and thoughtful conversations, Robert attempts to understand the pros and cons of marriage from his diverse and frequently hilarious friends, and begins to make sense of his own persistent bachelorhood. ‘Company’, Stephen Sondheim’s ground-breaking modern musical, is a mature, intelligent, and wildly funny look at relationships, vulnerability, and “being alive.” Every audience member will see reflections of themselves in at least one of the characters onstage. The musical is now entering it's 50th year!

As you venture up the driveway the grand Victorian Italianate homestead appears from a towering arboretum of a magnificent collection of evergreen and deciduous trees, some very rare and unique. Surrounding the eastern side of the homestead is a patchwork of hedged gardens showcasing everything from a detailed knot garden, exquisite swimming pool and pavilion, sculptures demanding centre stage and even a friendly family of four emus Open Gardens:

The gardens are open to the public on the first weekend of each month. Light refreshments are available but you are more than welcome to bring a picnic as there are many idyllic spots to claim for a lazy lunchtime.

SWEET 4 2 CELLOS

Saturday 11th of May
2.30PM
The Rose Room, 51F Sunninghill Ave, Burradoo 2576
E. tim@baroque.com.au

"Cellissimo" (with baroque cellists Tim Blomfield & Belinda Manwaring) presents “SWEET 4 2 CELLOS”.
A performance of Masterworks for 2 cellos, celebrating the flourishing of cello music – from the Baroque to Romantic periods – over 130 years.
• Music by Salvatore Lanzetti, Francesco Geminiani, Giuseppe Cambini, Carl Friedrich Abel, Friedrich Kummer and David Popper.
The sound of 2 cellos playing in swooning harmony together is an amazingly smooth experience indeed!
Wanting to share this experience around and “cello-brate” the composers who wrote music especially for this combination, in 2015 baroque cellists Belinda Manwaring and Tim Blomfield formed “Cellissimo” (Australia’s premiere gut-string cello duo).
Since that time, “Cellissimo” has performed in Paris, Sydney, the Gold Coast and the Queensland Granite Belt.

“Cellissimo” is thrilled to be returning to the Rose Room, for their fourth successive year, to perform “Sweet 4 2 Cellos”.
