Today I facilitated a workshop in North Perth. It was a half day class with four ladies who did really well in the time available.

Luscious Bead Workshop

Today i gave a polymer clay workshop at a craft shop in Perth. Some students had not used polymer clay very much but they all did a great job.

We used alcohol inks and foils to create some beautifully coloured beads for a necklace.

It was quite magical watching the inks flow. It was also quite messy!

Yanchep Rose Trail - Yanchep National Park


This morning I walked the Yanchep Rose trail in the Yanchep National Park. It was an ideal day, cool and sunny.

The signpost walk takes you across the Wanneroo Road past old RAAF's WW2 radar bunkers, which  during World War Two (from 1942-46) the National park was occupied by the armed services. There were twelve women and ten men stationed at the base. It was during this time that the two concrete bunkers were constructed. Graffiti artists have painted the inside of the bunkers

The trail follows a sandy track for several kilometres to a limestone escarpment.

Diplolaena angustifolia, Yanchep Rose was blooming prolifically in a small area on the limestone.
