On Friday I crossed into Federation Square as Barnaby Joyce announced his resignation as Deputy Prime Minster, that put a skip into my step. I was heading toward a weaving workshop hosted by Koorie Heritage Trust. The workshop facilitator , Donna Blackall of Yorta Yorta/Taungurung, got my thumbs weaving, first attempt. Wow did I love it or what.:)
I am holding medallion workshop they will be crazy and zany – from recycled materials, beads, sequins, card paint we will throw everything onto them loosely based on the suffrage badges of 1890’s-1910 at JS studio’s this Sunday 25 February. Drop in or stay for the day.
Two days a week I facilitate art practice with 3 groups of people with mental and physical health challenges. I feel as if we learn together sharing knowledge. Their art work and practice is free and expressive. After easter they will be holding a little private soiree for friends and family. We are all getting a bit excited.
