Lingering look at windows : Another visit to Yungaburra

Yungaburra is not a large village but there is so much to see (click here to see my previous post about this charming village) So it certainly needed another visit.

This time we followed the art trail.

This church has been reborn as an art studio.

I could not resist buying. What a great space to create in.

This original church made an ideal studio, it was light and airy and the designs reflected the happy atmosphere. I could not resist buying a cushion cover with the design of a sunflower on it, one of my favourite flowers. When we moved to the next door gallery look what we walked past.

Could not resist showing off this happy sunflower

Now that is one huge sunflower. It towered above smiling down on me.

The next gallery specialised in wooden furniture. Solid, lovingly carved using all Australian woods, Red Cedar, Silky Oak and many others. The pieces gleamed with many hours of precision work to create that deep shine and lustre.

Taking a short cut back to the village we came across this old building tucked away behind the pub.

This studio and craft shop was originally the laundry of the Yungaburra hotel built 1920's

Finally on our way home we called into the “Full Circle Studio and Gallery”. After finding galleries and studios in old churches, heritage laundries and imposing two-story buildings this was a purpose-built studio, intimate and full of an amazing diverse range of art work. We spent quite awhile talking to Sue, the multi-talented artist. Of course we could not photograph her art but go to her website www.fullcirclestudio.com.au and see what she has created, it is unique and original.

    • The atmosphere inside that church/studio was a tangible thing, calm and creative. I have just sown sunflower seeds in this garden we are custodians of, they should flower just before we leave, I hope.

    • Did your connection let you go to the art work of Sue at Full Circle Gallery? Her style reminded me a bit of your art work. Extremely talented and prolific lady
