Somewhere to hire or borrow Exhibition Gear?

I used to be a Rotarian…I know some Rotary clubs of Perth hire out and set up exhibition gear for very little. I used to be the curator for Armadale Shire’s upper school student art exhibition ‘Outside the frame’ and I know we used the exhibition gear from a local club then.

The person to contact at Armadale Shire is Melanie Green. Other than that contact me on 94982108 or 64881260 (work) and I’ll find the contact.

Blank deck chairs for decorating?

I got some deck chairs from Bunnings for only $15 each recently. However, they were coloured. I’m just going to get the kids to paint them white (cheap ceiling white acrylic) before we paint their designs.

Another supplier is a South Australian company I’ve used in the past. They deliver.  Lance T.
