Blue Tongue Adventure youth creations on display at new homewares and art gallery

ARTWORKS created by Redlands young people with disabilities are now on display at a new homewares and art gallery.

The paintings, sketches, ceramics and jewellery are on display and for sale, alongside a range of unique furniture and homewares by Australian builders and makers, at the Blue Tongue Collectables in Wynnum.

The works are a product of the Art 'n' Soul workshops, for participants of Blue Tongue Adventure program run by Capalaba-based disability services provider Tea-Cup Cottage.

Director Alex Shaw said the workshops gave participants a hands-on opportunity to use their creativity and self-expression, while also building self-confidence.

"One of our artists, Aidan, had his "Patrick Pumpkin" print featured on designer Gorman's 'Collab With Gorman' online competition," Ms Shaw said.

"It was so exciting seeing his work on display alongside other talented artists from around the country.

"We're really excited about seeing Collectables becoming a much-loved community hub, especially with plans for a morning coffee cart to start operating outside the store soon, run by some of our Blue Tongue Adventure participants."

The shopfront is at 260 Tingal Road.
