Made with Love

10 - 23 December, 2011
Whether it is creating memories or even handmade gifts, Made with Love: A South Bank Christmas – presented by South Bank Corporation – will engage and delight the whole community. It’s been a long, hard year for Brisbane locals and South Bank Corporation believes that Christmas is all about joy, hope, love and giving so this year we have done away with the mass‐produced, commercial idea of Christmas to refocus on the feeling behind the holiday. An inspiring series of classes will be held at the Christmas Craft Studio (Suncorp Piazza) where from 10 December, twice a day, expert artisans will educate participants of all ages on how to craft their own lovingly handmade gifts − many from up‐cycled and sustainable materials. From Wednesday 14 December, visitors can also take time out with friends and family at the Under the Trees lawn (Little Stanley).
Soak up the ambience and luxuriate in the holiday spirit by relaxing in our beautifully styled picnic area –
complete with bar and entertainment – or challenge a newfound friend to a spot of croquet or lawn games.
Continuing the handmade theme, make your own picnic from the extensive menu of tasty morsels from
South Bank retailers, nibble from our bar snacks menu or bring your own packed picnic to enjoy the
atmosphere. In the true spirit of giving, South Bank Corporation will host a private gala community picnic on 17 December, where 40 Red Cross families will be spoiled with decadent hampers and a special night under the twinkling trees. The Under the Trees picnic lawns will be open daily from 10am to 10pm with drinks and music kicking off from 6pm each day.

Where: The Parklands, South Bank, Brisbane, QLD.
When: 10 - 23 December, 2011
Cost: All Christmas Craft Studio classes (click here for more info) are held in Suncorp Piazza, are two hours long and are suitable for a range of ages. Prices range from $7 to $40.
