Our guide explained how the artists made paints from crushed up rocks. We also found out that the Aboriginal people paint a picture first and then cover it with a second picture. This protects their secrets and traditions from outsiders.

Moving on to the clay workshop we all had a try at sculpting our own clay fish.

The gallery also had a nice garden which the group roamed around in for a while before we headed off for lunch.
Once at home we used various sponges and our fingers to make Aboriginal style paintings.
