The Medallion workshop was a great success. People dived into the treasure trove of sparkles, button, beads, materials, threads, bibs and bobs. There were a thousand one things to choose from to create a medallion. No two were alike. The medallions created will go toward the Strut your Stuff festival at J Studio in March.
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.:)
Lots of great events can be found here very accessible. http://koorieheritagetrust.com.au/whats-on/public-programs-and-events/
