Indigenous Flora Watercolour Workshop

  • Darebin Creek Environment Centre Darebin Parklands, East end of Seperation St Alphington, VIC 3078 Australia (map)

Join local Illustrator and Textile Designer Carly Altree-Williams for a one day workshop learning about and illustrating the local Indigenous flora in the Darebin Parklands.

The workshop will commence with a walk led by Aboriginal Elder Uncle Trevor Gallagher in the Darebin Parklands through the Spiritual Healing Trail. The Spiritual Healing Trail is a gift from the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community as a gesture of reconciliation. It aims to promote personal good health through improving our emotional and spiritual well-being and a sense of being connected to the land where we reside, to others and most importantly ourselves. 

It will also give you the opportunity to view the vast array of beautiful Indigenous plants within the parklands.

We will then return to the Darebin Creek Environment Centre for morning tea and commence our workshop fully inspired!
