In 2020 we held on online Open Day due to COVID. It was a ball, with a bunch of Wollies, near and far, interacting online with tours, workshops, the auction, zoom chats and more. It was definitely different to any Open Day Wollangarra has had before, but it also meant we got a heap of great video content from our community that can be watched whenever.
Workshops from our talented community members included:
– Broad-axing with Wayne McCallum
– Cheese and stock making with Chryp Whiley
– Blacksmithing with Peter Frost
– Sourdough making with Clare Reilly
– Glass cutting with Ralph Barraclough
– Wool spinning with Marion Wheatland
– Bush poetry with Don Dwyer
– Wood splitting with Paul Whiley
– Fire lighting with Steve Carrol
– Knitting with Josh Heins
– Saurkraut with Annabelle Nunan
– Cooking magic with the Bradys
– and many more!
There was virtual tour around the homestead where you could take a trip across the fox and see what was new around the flat
There was stories from our ex-staff
– 2013 bushfires with Eric Woodward
– Classic Woll shenanigans with Clare Mosley and Gemma Costello
– Woll memories with Paul Nichol
And (Not so) Live music!
– The Mac Springs
– and Community Open Mic!
But don’t despair if you missed the day, excitingly you are still able to purchase a ticket and access the jam packed content that you will have access to forever!
Upon purchasing a ticket you will be given access to the ticketed (ONLINE) Wollangarra Open Day Facebook group where all online content was posted on the day of the event. Alternatively, send us a USB or SD card and we can get the videos to you that way! There is heaps of cool stuff there, and it is a great way to support Wollangarra whilst we get back on our feet post-COVID
Usually we have an on site Open Day, where you can come and check the place out in person. We hope to have this is 2021.
Here are a few photos of our last Open Day in 2019, it was Wollangarra’s 30th Anniversary, and there was over 300 people on site over the day.
