Creative Workshop At Dirty Janes Canberra
Goose Feather Christmas Tree with Jennie McClelland from @milkbreadeggshoney
Originating in the late 1880s, with a nod to conservation, Germans started making Christmas Trees from stripped goose feathers attached to wire, as an alternative to cutting down a tree. The traditional trees were three foot tall with wire branches spaced for candles to burn.
Today we are going to create a beautiful, modern, softer version using driftwood & layers of commercial goose feathers sourced from a family business in Sydney.
Made from foraged materials from Jennie's farm in Bungendore, the trees are constructed from driftwood branches & reclaimed fencing wire.
The 'toppers’ are an assortment of exotic feathers, dried native & meadow flowers + gum nuts.
Date: Sunday 4 October
Time: 11am to 4pm
Venue: The Barn at Dirty Janes, Canberra
Limited Tickets Available: https://events.humanitix.com/goose-feather-christmas-tree-workshop

Annie Holcombe settled down in Bowral in the beautiful Southern Highlands 23 years ago and started to paint seriously. She is very much influenced by Matisse and David Hockney. Colour is so very important to her and she could not imagine life without it. Annie also enjoys hand building ceramics, each piece being a one off with hand painted scenes and some flower paintings lately.
