Indigenous Art Class - Group Canvas



2 hours 10 to 20 label $70


In this class the artist will take you through story telling, talk about seasons, symbols and tools, language and Indigenous local knowledge.

We supply all paint, brushes, gum nuts and a big piece of canvas with a story behind the piece everyone comes through and helps paint it while I explain what it all means. The organisation then keeps the piece.

This is the perfect combination of a therapeutic art class and workshop on art techniques of local culture.

A great workshop for team bonding.

Djurandi Dreaming



Our incentive was to share cultural awareness and education to all tour participants. Djurandi Dreaming tours are designed around the culture of the traditional Nyungar people of the south west of Australia and the Yamitji people of the mid-west of Australia.

We love to engage our customers in great activities, secluded locations and visual surprises that make you stop, take a breath and appreciate this beautiful country we belong to.

My family and I started Djurandi Dreaming in 2017 aiming to deliver an exciting cultural experience to the local people of Perth and visitors to Western Australia.

I first started to get interested in teaching my culture around 10 years ago, I started painting and remembering more of the stories I was told growing up. My dot painting is an art passed down from generation to generation. The one person who really showed me the meaning of dot paintings and how to dot paint was my Grandmother Joan Margret Martin nee Lewis (deceased), a well-known Aboriginal Artist. My Grandmother was one of the main people in my life that helped me to become the artistic person I am today. Painting and story telling to me is a form of meditation and spiritual healing.

Today I am blessed with the company of my Nanna – my Mum’s Mother and respected Nyungar Elder, Theresa Walley. Her knowledge has been inspirational in developing Djurandi Dreaming. Spending time with her on our country with our children passing down language, dreamtime stories and works of creation to our next generations. My Nanna will be a special guest sharing her knowledge on some of our tours.

I hope you enjoyed my story, and that it has given you creative thought of my dreamtime culture and way of life.
