What's on at Bottlebrush?
If you would like to learn a new craft skill or just be part of a social craft group, then the Bottlebrush Craft Centre has the answer.
We have a number of different craft groups operating at various times during the week.
The Bottlebrush Craft Centre is open six days a week, from 9am to 2pm Monday to Friday and from 9am to 1pm on Saturdays.
About Bottlebrush Crafts
Maitlia Potters Inc. was first formed in 1977. Initially it was an organisation for people mostly interested in pottery. In 1988, thanks to a government grant, it was able to purchase its own premises where an art and craft gallery called Bottlebrush Crafts was established and the rules amended to accept membership from all persons interested in all forms of art and craft.
The main aim of the group is to promote the work of talented local artists and craftspeople by giving them a facility where they can practice their craft and pass on their talents to other people within the community. The Bottlebrush Craft Centre also provides a gallery where artists can display their work and sell at reasonable prices. Visitors and new members are always welcome.
The Croydon Foundry Museum
This museum, which is worth a visit, also forms part of the complex at the corner of Ferry and Queen Streets in Maryborough. The Croydon Foundry was established by English migrant William Stevenson in 1908 and operated in Maryborough until 1968. The museum is in the original Croydon Foundry office which is joined onto the Craft Centre.
