No matter what sort of art catches your attention, buying real estate in Bunbury is always going to include some creative intentions, and the 'crafternoons' that have been occurring south of the city in Withers will attract buyers with a more colourful eye.
Trees between the Hudson Road Family Centre and the Withers Library have been decorated with yarn and crocheted items in an effort to brighten up the area and entice more people to visit.
A resident community artist in Withers, Kelly Darragh, organises the weekly afternoon craft sessions and is positive about the effect they are going to have on the community.
"Tree blankets require a lot of hands on deck, and the more trees that get a jumper the merrier Hudson Road is going to look," she said.
The craft creations for trees are just one of the initiatives supported by the local Withers community that are currently in operation. Ms Darragh is also running a workshop that focuses on the diverse ecosystem on the west coast of Australia, teaching attendees about the flora and fauna, and then creating representations of them in mandala style, which is circle art.
According to Visual ArtsHub Australia, mandala draws people further into the works because of the layout of the circles. The pieces in Withers will be painted on a community ping-pong table.
Bunbury rentals may also see a boost as the community around the city flexes its creative muscles and strives to bring a greater sense of peace and colour to the region. As the warm feeling on the west coast rises, the Bunbury property sector, both buying and renting, will likely receive a welcome boost.
