Mother’s Day Gift Ideas: Score Queensland-Made Items for Mum at the Mt. Coot-tha Botanic Gardens Pop-Up Shop

A special arts and crafts showcase is popping up at the Mt. Coot-tha Botanic Gardens, where you can score unique Queensland-made gift items for your beloved mum, just in time for Mother’s Day.

The pop-up shops will be open on Saturday and Sunday, the 27th and 28th of April 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The stores will specifically be set up at the garden’s auditorium.

Hosted by the Brisbane Visual Arts Community (BVAC), the Mother’s Day pop-up shop will feature the creations of local artists and crafters like Kate Bray, Wendy Goode, Jan Steer, and Louise Sanders, who are members of different arts and crafts groups in Brisbane and Queensland.

The Mother’s Day pop-up is the first of two events held by the BVAC every year. The second pop-up happens before the Christmas rush in November.

This is an opportunity for the art community in Brisbane to have a regular means to showcase their work to the public.

If you are an artist with a group of more than three members, you may also become part of the BVAC, which has monthly meetings at its home base in the Wellers Hill Arts Hub in Tarragindi.
