2 days Earth Skills workshop with Claire Dunn
Claire Dunn is coming back to Castlemaine! This time, we have combined a multitude of amazing teachers and elders to teach you deep nature connection and Earth Skills over this 2 days workshop. Dinner will be provided Saturday night and people are welcome to camp on the property but will need to be self-sufficient with their own water and food for the 2 days. Our Saturday will start at 10 am with a Welcome to Country, followed by a day packed with amazing activities with Claire and Jem (fire by friction, string making, nature awareness games and much more) . Evening meal will be served around the campfire and we encourage people to bring their own music instruments to join in the fun. We will have the amazing opportunity to hear Indigenous stories around the campfire with Rebecca Phillips who is a Djaara storyteller and passionately involved in Dja Dja Wurrung language retrieval.
Our Sunday morning will start with a morning walk, followed by stories in the landscape, tracking, bird and animal language with Michael Smith and Mel Turnbull from firekeepers. After lunch, we will have the opportunity to learn Dja Dja Wurrung basket weaving with acclaimed weaver Aunty Marilyn. A great 2 days of connection and immersion in nature. Children under 12 are free with adult supervision. Hope to see you soon!
