New holiday workshops this week as SUNfest continues

WEEK two of SUNfest is bound to be exciting with new workshops for kids and teens beginning.

The SUNfest IZIT! performance art workshops start on Monday with kids signing up to learn about drama, dance, singing, slam poetry and living statues.

These five-day workshops will result in a performance at the SUNfest showcase on Friday night.

For those wanting to try different sports, there will also be guided kayak tours at Seventeen Seventy, horse riding at Harmony Farm and tennis games at Gladstone Tennis/Squash Complex.

Crafty types can expect to see more fantastic workshops available.

The PCYC is hosting a recycled lantern workshop, and the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery and Museum is playing host to a mini top hat and fascinator workshop, a "klay kreetures" workshop and a tote bag sharpie tie-dyeing workshop.
