There is an incredible line up of workshops, puppetry, quilting and stalls. At the free 2-hour session for families there will be illustrators, authors and glass artists from the society, exhibiting, signing and selling their work. The program is designed for all ages, including a free puppet show for kids, garden walks for families and storytelling.
Special guests include ABC presenter Cheralyn Darcey, Australian bestselling author Dr Kate Forsyth (who has a PhD in Rapunzel), Morgan Bell who will explore plants in literature, and fairy tale creatures hiding in the garden, just waiting to play with the little ones.
