Goolwa gears up for SALA Festival 

GOOLWA - Mosaic artist Carol Treadwell is arranging the last few pieces of her studio to beam rays of light for this year's South Australian Living Arts Festival.

This year, Carol's work will be shown in her newly renovated business; two historic 1870 stone buildings on Moore Street, Goolwa. 

The smaller of the two buildings will be a retail shop where she will sell kiln fired glass, mosaic wall hangings and jewelry.

She will use the larger building to teach glass and ceramic mosaics. 

"Anybody can do mosaics, it's not like painting," she said. 

Carol is very excited about opening her own business; she explains that the place on Moore Street in Goolwa with its private garden area is exactly what she was looking for. 

"It's just gorgeous, very beautiful," she said.

Carol has been involved in the SALA festival for the last five years and previously showed her work in Creative Mosaics in Hyde Park, where she operated the business. 

With twelve years of experience in the area of mosaics and her involvement in the foundation group of 25 artists instrumental in establishing Art @ Goolwa in June last year, her knowledge of art and business is constantly growing.

Creative Glass Studio will have its grand opening on August 11.

The SALA Festival will run from August 2 to 25.
