Weekend at Port Fairy

Moorabool Fibre Artists visited Port Fairy for the weekend… We were instructed in eel trap making by Cheree Densley at the Port Fairy Community Centre on Saturday July 1. Cheree Densley is a local basket maker and botanist from the area who shared with us her knowledge of indigenous history in relation to the making of eel traps and aquaculture of Budj Bim (Mount Eccles). It was a lovely social weekend complete with whale sitings, yummy food, a garden tour, exhibition visit and op shopping.
