Gift Shop Gander - Featured artist, Cindy Wright

Each month, CASM highlights one artist with items currently available in the Gift Shop. Cindy creates glass beads by melting glass rods. Each bead is individually hand crafted, shaped and decorated in an 800c flame, then annealed for 24 hours to ensure the glass remains stable. The beads are then used to make jewellery and to enhance high quality 305 stainless steel cutlery. Read more.
We're all in this together!

Although they may look like a collection of professional supermodels, these individuals are the talented, creative minds behind many of the local businesses in the Mandurah area.

From clothes and jewellery to balloons and mini dachshunds, these geniuses offer it all. To get a closer look at the beautiful items available, and view the multitude of services on offer, follow our local business owners on Instragram.

Homelessness Week Event

Rotunda - Eastern Foreshore

A multitude of organisations will be coming together with a range of activities and services, in the biggest event of its kind outside Perth. Accompanied by live music from local musicians Navana Funnell and Meredith Whittle, the community will have the opportunity to express their idea of what home means on individual signs, which will be added to a collective sign post.

More than 40 local services will be providing clothing, toiletries, haircuts and activities (including couch surfing trials) for the homeless and others who wish to be involved. Donations of clean blankets and sleeping bags can be made to Coast FM (located on Mandurah Terrace).
