|Inside the Long House where a beautifully decorated table provided the materials and the space to have fun!|
Instead of talkin more about The Happy Talk workshops that are happening in Hyde Park at the moment -
as part of Art + About 2011- I thought i would just show you a few of my impressions from the first workshop called Lei Day....
|The lovely Maryann Talia Pau, a Melbourne based artist, was our guide through the world of Lei making.|
As we worked she told us stories about what giving a Lei means in her family, and in Samoan culture.
|When you enter the space there is a wall with hessian sacks filled with plants that can provide weaving materials for those who feel like picking leaves from live plants...|
|so many textures to play with!|
|The blue shade cloths made everything fluro blue...|
