Visitors from China

Students from the veterinary science department of Charles Sturt University and TAFE  were recently in Bathurst as part of  their immersion program and spent a morning at Rahamim. 

They loved the taste of damper with golden syrup and found the challenge of keeping the damper on their roasting stick a lot of fun. They also created beautiful branch weavings using wool from second hand shops and a locally foraged branch. 

Branch weaving is very simple. It involves tying yarn or cotton thread around a Y shaped branch to create a loom and then simply pulling yarn back and forth through the thread frame. The result is a beautiful woven tapestry.  You can incorporate items found outside like feathers and leaves too. 

Rahamim can create customised workshops from a range of activities for groups of all ages. If you have a group that you would like to have an outdoor experience, please feel free to get in touch with our educators.
