As a child I listened to Dad’s tales of cattle trucks, dust, and the mines at Mt Isa. He flew there with my sister once and then they both talked about this marvellous place in outback Queensland. Well my turn to visit arrived this weekend! Flying Arts and the Julia Creek Cultural Association invited me to run a workshop in Julia Creek. I flew into Isa and drove the 250k through Cloncurry to Julia Creek with my bundled up ingredients for art making in two bags. Three generations of families came along. new friends were made, and some creative talents uncovered in the prints that we made on cloth and clothing.
