|Ceramics Victoria - ready to demonstrate their art|
Then on Australia Day all the Groups set up camp in the courtyard and held "court" for an enthusiastic and cheerful flood of visitors.
All the groups were well represented and everyone was inspired to ask questions and try out their skills.
|Saeed and a portrait...|
|Cressida has all the colours there - befitting someone representing the Contemporary Art Society and A4 Art Australia.|
|Damien running a walk and talk around the island|
Damien from Friends of Herring Island did a walk and talk all around the island - all the plants on the island not withstanding that they are locally indigenous, were planted and nurtured by the Friends. There are pictures on their website of the island in its various modes of construction - levy banks piled high with dredging from the river - you wouldn't recognize the current peaceful bush land setting!
|Roulettes on their fly past|
And the Basketmakers were there - twisting, weaving, twining - and of course chatting!
|Basketmakers very relaxed about getting in a twist|
|The grand weaving!|
Monday 27th is the last day of the sculpture exhibition - and on the first of February Herring Island welcomes the Basketmakers of Victoria!
