Joey’s Package at the Mona Vale Library on Tuesday is part of the wonderful Guringai Festival had a fantastic display with a Didgeridoo show, face painting, song and dance, Aboriginal art making and storytelling for children. We had a wonderful time. T was most interested in exactly how the boomerang is used to hunt animals!

Hitting the Curriculum the hard way! 

We heading out to the Sydney Harbour Reserve ( Our old stomping grounds) to investigate and discover the Aboriginal history there. Our favourite beach, Reef Beach was used by them as a fishing and a “Midden”. Tons of shells on the beach from feasts had there long ago. 

Glorious way to discover some of our HSIE!

YuuMii Workshop 5 + 6 : Symmetrical stencil making and Silk Screening

It’s been an incredibly busy couple of weeks!

Lessons 5 : Vase Stencil & Silk Screening 

Stage 1 focused on Vase Printing, using symmetrical design and patterns to create post cards and T-Shirt Prints. We cut out our symmetrical shapes, traced, added detail and then traced this onto our make-shift Silk screens (embroidery hoops with silk) with Modge Podge on the areas that we did not want the paint to transfer onto.

Stage 2 did the same with their Crest designs.

The following week we used our dry screens to transfer the designs onto fabric and paper!

The children will add flowers, hand drawn to the prints.

They REALLY enjoyed this activity - I had to help quite a bit with painting the screens to make them crisp. I think that the next time we will actually silk screen properly. I had tried it with this method as i thought it would help the children better understand the printing process in a faster way. However, I do think that they are patient enough to work towards a better, longer lasting end result. 

Our family will use our screens to make presents for all the new babies in our lives! Looking forward to posting those images soon!
