Third Quarter Studio Challenge

The theme for this quarter’s Studio Challenge is ‘Australia’.

What do you picture when you think of Australia? Is it the unique wildlife like Koalas, Kangaroos or maybe the Duckbilled Platypus?

Maybe it’s the red soil and impressive landscapes?

Perhaps it’s something more political like stolen land or the stolen generations.

Or maybe it’s aboriginal art, the dreamtime or their excellent films?

We’re a bit late posting this quarter, so there’s just over two months for this challenge, but that’s plenty of time 🙂 You can use any medium you like as long as it includes fabric, fibres or felt, and it can be any size or shape you like. If you’d like to join in, please join our Flickr group and post your photos there with a tag of “Australia Challenge”. Or if you have your own blog, post about the challenge and then come back here and leave us a comment with a link so we can check out your Australia inspired piece or even just your thoughts and inspirations.

    What an interesting challenge.

    I love Australian films and I like to listen to Australians speak – especially when they don’t mince their words (when a spade is definitely called a spade).

      Thanks, Lyn 🙂
      I love Australian Films too and Karen always laughs at me, but I still watch Neighbours 🙂

  2. I like austrailian bands and the accent is great. But the first thing that springs to mind for me is big spiders.

      I’d forgotten about the spiders 😦
      Is it ok to ban spiders from the challenge? 😉
      I like Australian bands too, I thought it was nice that Brisbane named a bridge after The Go-Betweens.
