Raman Mundair writes about a series of workshops she delivered at Wastview.
Thursdays for the past few months have been a delight. I've had the pleasure of working with elders at Wastview on the Westside. We've been getting together and having a cuppa, taking a moment, cradling a warm brew in our hands while we chat. We've been considering our humble hands. Sharing memories of our hands. Both creative and the mundane. The small touches and the epic.
During these days together we thought of the things our hands had touched and made. We spent the time being lightsome, making new marks in unfamiliar materials, trying new textures, patterns and colour. Each creation a celebration of the varied journeys our hands have undertaken alone and with others. The finished work, a sort of hand-made round of applause.
