Photography! February 7th

On Thursday last, we gathered in the student lounge to chat all things photography!

img_1311.jpg

We met at 11am and had a range of phones and cameras between us. We had a brief introductory chat to establish what we all knew about photography.

We all learned about composition (the placement of the subject(s) in the photo) and why good composition is so important. We also learned about composition guidelines such as the Rule of Thirds and how to apply that to a photo.

Finally, we also looked at perspective which was a really fun one to capture together 🙂

Having fun with our perspective shots! (See below how they took this)

Morning Beach Picnic! January 30th

Last Wednesday morning started out with grey, cloudy skies but the sun came out just in time for our beach picnic! We met at 11am and headed towards Main Beach, here in Byron. It was super hot out so we found a lovely place on the grass area, under the shade of a tree. We had beautiful views, with the sea right in front of us. The best view in Byron! 😀

img_1005

Our tasty picnic was made up of snacks such as blueberries, strawberries, crackers with an assorted cheese plate, French onion dip, crisps, orange juice and some sweet lamingtons to finish!

We all chilled out in the shade, listening to music (on the speaker that Moses kindly brought! 🙂 ) and chatted about our lives at home, here in Byron and about all of our future travel plans 😀

Jewellery Making! January 31st

Yesterday was the last day in January and the last activity on our January Lexis calendar was jewellery making! We all met in the student lounge at 11.30am. I had a basket full of amazing craft supplies including a range of beads, shells, glass stones, wire, feathers, threads and various types of macrame cord.

I showed the group how to make a crystal wrap necklace, using a macrame knotting technique. For this, we each chose one stone, then used 3 long lengths of cord to begin our piece. We then make a little net to tightly hold the stone and braided the remaining pieces to hang around the neck. It is a relatively simple technique but takes time and precision.

Everyone was free to either follow what I was doing or use their imagination and create their own individual piece. To get them on their way, I showed them some examples and some tips and tricks for tying adjustable knots. We had necklaces, bracelets and ankle bracelets!

 

After the crystal net was formed, everyone had their own method for holding the necklace in place while they braided/plaited the remaining strings!

 

The finished pieces looked amazing! They were all so different – some people added beads and different knots to personalise their own.

Wine Tasting! January 25th

img_0907

What better way to kick of the long Australia Day weekend than with some wine tasting in the garden! It was a beautiful sunny day – the perfect backdrop to our Friday activity. We had a range of wines to choose from – the reds: Merlot & Shiraz, the whites: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc & Muscato and also a Rose.

 

img_0914.jpg

In an effort to be mindful of our environment and plastic waste, we collected all cups after the tasting, to be washed and refreshed for future tastings 😉

Everyone enjoyed the wines but the clear favourites seemed to be the Shiraz and the sweet Muscato!

Saying ‘cheers’ in 4 different languages! 😀

For our final week in January we have a beach picnic and jewellery making still to come! Keep an eye on our blog this week for our list of amazing activities for the month of February! 🙂
