This practical based course has been designed to provide an understanding of Possum Skin Cloaks, the purpose, process and techniques.
Educators participate in the making of a keep sake to take back to your service (arm band), and have the opportunity to work (sew, design and burn) on a larger scale project such as a baby blanket.
We explore how this content is appropriate in the context of the Australian Curriculum and demonstrate how these activities and knowledges can be connected into your day to day curriculum.
