Metal Clay Art Studio - MCAS

I had a lovely couple come to my studio to find out all about precious metal clay. Just have a look at the jewellery they made. Barry made a lovely pendant that Heather is wearing and Heather made her earrings.

Thank you Joanne, lovely workshop.

Some photos of some of the participants ( from Plantagenet, Denmark and Albany) and their creations at the basketry class today at the Porongurups. Amongst the creating was must chat and getting to know each better. More planned for next year. Watch this space.
Participants are thrilled to learn the skills to be able to create beautiful things with no visits to the shops. Except for a needle and scissors all materials are found in nature. Enjoy the continued creation journey.

And how are these all joined?

Does anyone know how this is done please?

There is now a vacancy in this saturdays class

Joanne Francis is addicted to the creation of baskets.

Leading up to this very social time of year to be able to create free gifts is such a bonus. There will be much information on materials and styles and inspiration.
Class will run adjacent to the Porongurup Shop (98531110).

The Bush Tannery

~| 🐟 Rescued Salmon skins from landfill being transformed into fish leather 🐙🐚 |~
.
.
Did you know that fish skins can be made into a durable leather textile for crafting using environmentally friendly ingredients at home?
.
.
.
Students from yesterday's Ethical Fish Leather Tanning workshop @ceresbrunswick learned how.
.
.
We even had a student from New Caledonia who was worried about the wasteful byproduct of the fishing industry in her home country travel all the way just for the workshop!
.
.
.
Another great sharing with dedicated and enthusiastic students ready to take these skills into their own worlds and utilising in their own ways.
.
.
Excited to see how the next wave of Fish Leather tanners end up using their new skill set.
.
.
Our next workshop is coming up on the weekend of December the 15th and 16th where we will be introducing a variety of methods from fish tanning to fur skin tanning.... *Check out our website for more details!
.
.
Happy tanning,
.

Albany Appliance Repair

Excellent Customer Service!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We specialise in white good repairs including washing machines, dryers, dishwashers, ovens, cooktops, lamps, rangehoods and other electrical appliances.

For my Eco Dyer friends

Light and dark - waratah eco prints affected by the presence of iron, or not. Some were dipped in tea beforehand; some in iron water. The darker results were also rolled around/next to iron objects, such as a rusty saw blade, coffee tin lid or trampoline spring. More details with each photo!

The Bush Tannery

• | It's a lot to condense a lost craft like traditional leather making into 1 day..... However we've got to start somewhere... And when you don't know where to start..... Well you start at the beginning..... Don't you?.... 😉 | •
.
.
.
Last week's Intro to Traditional Tanning Methods @ceresbrunswick in Melbourne was really good fun and with a great bunch of folks. Covering as much ground and foundational aspects in traditional tanning to give participants a feel for the craft.
.
.
Using wild hunted rabbit pelts, each participant got the chance to learn about how to store their skins before tanning them, how to flesh and clean up a skin using a tanning beam and various fleshing tools, how to prepare an all natural tanning solution for fur tanning, how to soften skins, and work together as a team to frame up a larger skin (such as the goat pictured) for frame softening. And if that didn't melt a few brains into the tanning solution bowl... We also discussed the different tanning methods such as brain tanning and bark tanning and how to finally smoke the hides once they're properly oiled and softened.
.
.
We even had one mother and son fly down from NSW for the workshop as there's nothing like this available according to them up their way. Which makes sense as I'm receiving emails almost every second day now about people all over Australia wanting to develop the skills to work with the land and their animals in ways that honour the whole animal and preserve its skin for various crafts and purposes.
.
.
The heart grows a little more with every workshop.... Although I wish I could say the same thing for my back running around with all the tools and equipment! Haha...
.
.
Looking forward to the next workshop this weekend again at CERES teaching 🐠 Fish Leather Making.
.
.
Happy tanning and crafting folks and thanks for following and a welcome to the new followers,
.
.
Josh 🙏

For all my country friends. Found this interesting.

Great read, good info for Australians.
Not all of it correct but excellent information anyway.
"That bite of summer has well and truly come early this year and with that heat, comes snakes.
3000 bites are reported annually.
300-500 hospitalisations
2-3 deaths annually.

Average time to death is 12 hours. The urban myth that you are bitten in the yard and die before you can walk from your chook pen back to the house is a load of rubbish.

While not new, the management of snake bite (like a flood/fire evacuation plan or CPR) should be refreshed each season.

Let’s start with a
Basic overview.

There are five genus of snakes that will harm us (seriously)
Browns, Blacks, Adders, Tigers and Taipans.

All snake venom is made up of huge proteins (like egg white). When bitten, a snake injects some venom into the meat of your limb (NOT into your blood).

This venom can not be absorbed into the blood stream from the bite site.

It travels in a fluid transport system in your body called the lymphatic system (not the blood stream).

Now this fluid (lymph) is moved differently to blood.
Your heart pumps blood around, so even when you are lying dead still, your blood still circulates around the body. Lymph fluid is different. It moves around with physical muscle movement like bending your arm, bending knees, wriggling fingers and toes, walking/exercise etc.

Now here is the thing. Lymph fluid becomes blood after these lymph vessels converge to form one of two large vessels (lymphatic trunks)which are connected to veins at the base of the neck.

Back to the snake bite site.
When bitten, the venom has been injected into this lymph fluid (which makes up the bulk of the water in your tissues).

The only way that the venom can get into your blood stream is to be moved from the bite site in the lymphatic vessels. The only way to do this is to physically move the limbs that were bitten.

Stay still!!! Venom can’t move if the victim doesn’t move.
Stay still!!

Remember people are not bitten into their blood stream.

In the 1980s a technique called Pressure immobilisation bandaging was developed to further retard venom movement. It completely stops venom /lymph transport toward the blood stream.

A firm roll bandage is applied directly over the bite site (don’t wash the area).

Technique:
Three steps: keep them still
Step 1
Apply a bandage over the bite site, to an area about 10cm above and below the bite.
Step 2:
Then using another elastic roller bandage, apply a firm wrap from Fingers/toes all the way to the armpit/groin.

The bandage needs to be firm, but not so tight that it causes fingers or toes to turn purple or white. About the tension of a sprain bandage.

Step 3:
Splint the limb so the patient can’t walk or bend the limb.

Do nots:
Do not cut, incise or suck the venom.
Do not EVER use a tourniquet
Don’t remove the shirt or pants - just bandage over the top of clothing.
Remember movement (like wriggling out of a shirt or pants) causes venom movement.

DO NOT try to catch, kill or identify the snake!!! This is important.

In hospital we NO LONGER NEED to know the type of snake; it doesn’t change treatment.

5 years ago we would do a test on the bite, blood or urine to identify the snake so the correct anti venom can be used.
BUT NOW...
we don’t do this. Our new Antivenom neutralises the venoms of all the 5 listed snake genus, so it doesn’t matter what snake bit the patient.

Read that again- one injection for all snakes!
Polyvalent is our one shot wonder, stocked in all hospitals, so most hospitals no longer stock specific Antivenins.

Australian snakes tend to have 3 main effects in differing degrees.

Bleeding - internally and bruising.
Muscles paralysed causing difficulty talking, moving & breathing.
Pain
In some snakes severe muscle pain in the limb, and days later the bite site can break down forming a nasty wound.

Allergy to snakes is rarer than winning lotto twice.

Final tips: not all bitten people are envenomated and only those starting to show symptoms above are given antivenom.

Did I mention to stay still."
