NAIDOC Week is a national annual week in which Australia's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples celebrate their history, culture & achievements. Today in Canberra we had NAIDOC on the Peninsula, a big family day where everyone was welcome to join the celebrations.
After the Outside Broadcast for work was done, I went over to check out the event. Great to see crowds of people of all cultures enjoying the day.

miss_and HMAS Otway, a submarine that's a landmark for the tiny NSW country town of Holbrook (some 200km+ from the sea) has been yarn bombed.

The 90m submarine hull has been covered with about 2500square metres of yellow knitting & crochet by locals to celebrate 50 years since the Beatles toured Australia. Townsfolk now use the refrain, "we all live near a yellow submarine". The yarn will be taken down mid-July and the various rugs & blankets donated to animal shelters.

miss_and Decoration. Here's the other item I decorated: a charger (large plate). Sort of a 'here comes the sun' feel. 1mon

miss_and Class snapshot. Here's some of our class at the Canberra Potters Society getting our decoration on. Our teacher, potter Maryke Henderson (in the striped top) is a real gem. As well as a splendid artist.

miss_and Decoration: some practice on paper, and then a first go on a dish. I'm pretty ordinary at decoration - spend my time getting better at making, and finishing is often an afterthought. 1mon

miss_and Obvara: an Eastern European low-temperature firing technique.
Here is Irish ceramic artist Jane Jermyn in action. She's pulled a hot pot from the raku kiln and dipped it in the obvara mix, and is pouring the mix out. Next she'll plunge the pot into a bucket of water to halt the obvara.
