Everyone ready to start! 🙂

I had some painted boomerangs to show as examples, as well as some information about the meaning behind all the symbols – an interesting insight into the traditional Aboriginal style, used to tell stories through the artists paintings.

See everyone concentrating hard on their masterpieces! 😀

Summer is still here and it was beautifully warm in and out of the water 🙂

We collected the boards from the wonderful team at Let’s Go Surfing, then I gave the students a quick demonstration on the beach before they headed into waves!

The waves were pretty small but they all managed to catch a few and had lots of fun, which is the important thing!

Making Dreamcatchers! 7 March

Yesterday Orla and I taught the students how to make dreamcathers!

I had a small group in the afternoon, which made it easy to show and help each of them individually, ensuing they were made to perfection!

We all opted to go for neutral, rustic designs. Once we had covered the outer ring and made the web, we made them more decorative with hanging feathers, tassels, shells and beads.

Maria and Patricia made theirs to go in their van, which will no doubt give them fond memories of Byron and Lexis when they’re on their travels, whilst Raphael decided his made a great accessory for glasses!
