Join Wadi Wadi, Yorta Yorta, and Ngarrindgeri artist, Glenda Nicholls for a special workshop at ArtPlay. Glenda learned twining and feather-craft from an early age by watching her mother and grandmother make feather flowers and weave baskets. Net making came to her from her ancestors in a dream. She believes in the importance of community and sharing traditions with future generations. In this workshop, you will use natural twine to weave your own basket to store treasured items, decorated with ochre, feathers and beads. Ages: 6 - 8 (10.30am - 12pm) and 7 - 10 (2pm - 3.30pm). All children must be accompanied by and adult.
