Rose City warms up for winter fest

THE weather is getting cooler, the trees are getting barer and the 10th Jumpers and Jazz in July Festival is getting closer and closer.

Warwick Art Gallery director Karina Devine said preparations for this year's festival, held from July 18-28, were coming together nicely.

"It is going to be the best one yet- there is no doubt about it," she said.

"I got a glimpse of the sculpture that a local artist is making to be installed around the art gallery and through the carpark behind the town hall.

"It looks fantastic."

Ms Devine said there were still a number of trees waiting to be claimed.

"There are a few more of the bigger trees, maybe about 15 left and they are all big ones," she said. "Including the palm trees.

"We would love someone to take on that challenge."

Seven workshops covering beginner crochet, patchwork, glass mosaics and 3D crocheting.

Ms Devine said all but one of the workshops still had vacancies.

"The Garden Trellis workshop is full but we are taking names for a waiting list," she said.

"The registration forms for the yarn bomb your bike competition are now available."

Ms Devine said tickets for the launch party on July 19 were already selling fast.

"They are being purchased by out-of-towners so locals need to get in quick if they want to buy tickets," she said.
