ANT FOX: Ant (Anthony) Fox was born in Lobethal SA in 1951. He worked and studied in plant sciences at the Adelaide University for half his working life, and was a Lutheran pastor for the other half. He retired at the end of 2016 and lives in the Adelaide Hills. Ant has been a, mostly self-taught, ‘part time artist’ since the 1970s, working mainly in oils. He has been a participant in several exhibitions in the Hills and the Barossa. His many trips into the arid outback as well as into the country areas of South Australia, Victoria, and New South Wales have made him familiar with our Australian landforms and colours. He cites the art of Fred Williams, Arthur Boyd, John Olsen, and Clifton Pugh as being major influences on his artistic thoughts, but does not pretend to be worthy to be in their company. AMELIA FOX: Amelia Fox (Abwfox) is a South Australian emerging artist, having Completed her Bachelor of Contempory Arts at the University of South Australia last year. She works predominantly with threads of all kinds, loving the tactile nature. Most of her inspirations start from her childhood home, from her Botanist parents - photographer and painter father, and fabric artist mother. Living at a time of film cameras, she also has a love of photography, black and white, polaroid, and now the freedom of candidly snapping every situation using digital formats. In this collection, Abstracted Landscapes, she uses a combination of focusing on colour and texture, sometimes combining the mediums to get a unique perspective of a simple landscape. Using threads, she wraps and weaves the colours and textures together to create her abstracted landscape panels. Starting with a photo, she manipulates the image in various ways by computer, printing onto fabric and using nature itself, sometimes repeating this process multiple times. This then creates surprise and unknown outcomes, just like the Australian landscape itself. JOY FOX: Joy Fox grew up in the Adelaide suburb of Cowandilla. She was trained in Botany and Horticulture at Adelaide Botanic Gardens, and later worked in biology and botany at Adelaide University. Joy has always had a keen interest in arts and crafts of all kinds. She expresses her love of form and colour in colourful patchwork fabric art, and in jewellery made from plastic, wood, and metal buttons. These works have been much admired both in South Australia and Victoria.

This wonderful event has been created to share with you the magic of making Kombucha!! A few talented locals have been creating their own for a while now and will be sharing their knowledge on the process.

So what is kombucha?? It’s a fermented tea with a culture called a Scoby but not the crime busting type. SCOBY stands for Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast. This Scoby is what ferments the tea and sugar over a two week period and gives you a quirky tasting drink like sour apple cider.

You can make all different flavoured kombucha but at this workshop we are just introducing you with the base product. In the future you can add flowers, roots and fruits.

Each guest will receive their own Scoby starter liquid and Jar to take home with brewing instructions. But limited to the first 10ppl booked. $10 per person.

So why make Kombucha? There are a lot of health claims out their about kombucha, it’s been around for 2,200 years originating in China. The health benefits depend on you gut and your body’s ability to absorb the healthy bacteria and keep it there. We all need more healthy gut bacteria so what have you got to loose?

Health benefits claims
­čŹ╣ Healthy gut bacteria to promote good intestinal flora and support bowel health
­čŹ╣ Vitamin C for strong immune system
­čŹ╣Antioxidants that fight free radicals in the body
