We followed a video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vmtkc7FOWLw&t=3s) to get us started, then the students created their own, with me on hand to help!

There was plenty of different fabrics, threads, beads and feathers for the students to use, so they were all able to make theirs completely unique!

Entertainment was provided with some beautiful singing from Eric, Lorene and Sacha, my particular favourite being their rendition of Queen’s Break Free!

I was very impressed by the different ideas everyone had for their dreamcathcers and the brilliant results!

Yesterday we got creative (and a little messy!) with Boomerang Painting!

I showed the students some symbols typically used by aboriginals along with their meanings and also some examples for them to copy,

but they were all happy to create their own designs!

After a relaxing hour of painting we put them to the test, with them returning most of time, until we lost 1 on the roof and 2 in a tree!

Lat Thursday we had a fun afternoon making Dream Catchers!

We watched a video to get us started (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vmtkc7FOWLw&t=3s)

Then got to work making our own!!

We had lots of different fabrics for the students to choose from, beads and shells for the center and feathers to hang from the bottom!

The end results were all beautifully unique and a great memento of their time in Byron!

Jewellery Making! 21 June

Yesterday we had a lovely afternoon making jewellery here at Lexis Byron!

I showed the students how to make net wrap pendants, that can then be turned into necklaces, bracelets, key chains, bag accessories or just decoration!

They also made some of their own designs using the beads, shells and jewels available to them!

Dream Catcher Making! 24 May

We had a creative afternoon making beautiful dream catchers!

First we watched a video from Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vmtkc7FOWLw&t=3s) demonstrating how to make them, and then it was our turn to give it a go!

It’s quite tricky at first but easy once you get going!

Once our nets were complete we added shells and beads to the centre and hung feathers from the bottom to make them even prettier!

Boomerang Painting! 16 May

Yesterday we had a lovely afternoon painting boomerangs!

I showed the students some handouts with symbols typically used by aboriginals along with their meanings, as well as some examples and templates for them to use,

 all the students got inventive though and came up with their own unique designs!

I was particularly impressed with Hansoo’s koala,

and Suzie, who used a pointed accessory to carve a pattern into the paint.

Shiho’s was the most authentic,

But all the students designs were beautiful and creative ❤

and they now all have a great souvenir to take home from Australia!

Jewellery Making! 7 March!

Today we made beautiful necklaces and bracelets during our Jewellery Making activity!!

I showed some of the students how to make net wrap pendants, but many got creative with their own designs!

We had a selection of shells, beads and stones for the students to use for their creations!

All the results were brilliant and will make a great souvenir or gift from their time in Byron!!
