Current Programs

Marra Dreaming have run a wide variety of programs over the years for the community. We are constantly developing our ongoing programs as well as creating new programs based on the needs of the community. A few examples of the types of programs we have run are;

 

  • A Crime Prevention initiative where we ran a Mud Drums Class in the evening on site for young boys who are at risk of offending.

  • A pottery class with the Aboriginal residents from the local Elders Village.

  • A Women's Healing Through Art group for Aboriginal women who are or may have experienced domestic violence.

  • Traditional arts and crafts workshops for Aboriginal children who have been removed from their families and are in foster care.

  • Arts and crafts workshops for a local disability group.

We also offer a range of classes for personal education and enjoyment. We offer classes in:

 

  • Traditional basket weaving

  • Contemporary Aboriginal art

  • Pottery (sculpture and wheel throwing)

  • Ceramics and glass painting

  • Silk painting

  • Learners' permit course

Classes usually run once a week for half or full days depending on the numbers. We require a minimum of five participants to be able to run a class. Prices will vary depending on the number of students, the art form and the length of the class. Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to set up a class. 

 

 

We are currently in the process of planning our programs for this year and will update our website as soon as possible. Please contact our office on (08) 8285 2311 if you would like any information or would like to discuss the possibility of tailoring a program to suit your organisation or group.
