I have been in Busselton WA for 2 weeks, enjoying daily walks with dad and Molly the dog. It has been really relaxing to be near the ocean, getting to know the area by foot. I have been collecting flotsam and jetsam (string and cordage) from the beach and river mouth during my stay. I approached ArtGeo with the idea of running a coiled basketry workshop using the resulting collection of flotsam and jetsam when I visit next. So on Thursday October 3 I will run a workshop entitled “Grapes by the Sea” using a grapevine looped rim as the start.
