Beauty in Folded Paper

Ipswich laid bare
Ever wondered why there’s a huge train museum in Ipswich? And what’s with the special Mines Rescue Service at Booval? And are there really more than 6000 heritage-listed sites in the district. And why a medieval church of all things? What’s the connection between the local Jagera people’s language and an iconic Aussie workwear brand? All – and more – is revealed in the Local History get togethers at the Booval campus, and Heritage walks around the Ipswich area.
…and not so weird. Why not discover more about life, the universe and everything at our Science classes. All that matters about matter… and other stuff too!
I’ll huff and I’ll puff…
..but there’s no house blowing-down exertion in our Walking Group. You’ll work up a healthy sweat, though, at Senior Exercise at Woodend Nature Reserve. Come on, get fit for life.
And so much more
Pluck some strings at a Basic Guitar class, swoosh a paint brush across blank canvas in an Art class, shout ‘hula!’ at a Mahjong game. Dissect political power plays in Current Affairs Discussion, or if movies are your thing, Film Discussion. Warble those vocal chords in a French, Italian, Japanese or Spanich class, or perhaps turn your scribbles into portraits at a Drawing class. There’s Line Dancing, Yoga and Chair Yoga/Pilates to get your body and soul in sync. There’s Computers, Crosswords and Cards (playing and making!) for those who prefer to be seated.
There’s so much to enjoy at U3A Ipswich and West Moreton. And its all for just a one-time annual fee; there are no individual activity/class fees (some activities may require a payment to cover additional costs, such as materials, transport, catering, etc)
We’re more than just classes. We’re your community.
