The residents of Palm Lake Resort Cooroy Noosa showcased their creative talents at their Art and Craft Expo at the recently opened Recreation Centre.

The wide variety of work on display included embroidery in petit point, needle point and cross stich; painting in oils, acrylic, alcohol ink and watercolour: drawings in ink and graphite; woodwork; pottery; photography, polymer clay jewellery and miniature working steam engines.

Dave Wood, internationally renowned calligrapher, had a display of his work, as did Marie Hansen a qualified instructor in Japanese embroidery.

Linzi Ward displayed a range of mosaics in glass, ceramic and shells, and a beautiful statue of ’Lady Celeste’.

Of special note was the display of clothing made by residents for ’Uniforms 4 Kids’ where discarded uniforms from police, fire and ambulance services are turned into clothing for disadvantaged children.
