submitted by Lynn McEvoy

Milking goats. Molding your face into a plaster mask. Writing songs and stories. Constructing a straw-bale building. Building a garden chair. Creating an animated story. Cooling down with yoga. Meditating in the woods…

It's day camp for adults - hands-on learning in our studios and eco-building sites in beautiful Brooke Valley, just west of Perth.

Thirty-two workshops for adults (and children) will be offered between Saturday July 14th and Friday July 20th. Most are just one or two days duration, but you are welcome to spend the whole week exploring your creative living skills.
