First Workshop for 2010

We have had our first workshop for the year at the Burrinja Cafe, with a great turnout and lots of fantastic work on display.

Excitingly the Burrinja Gallery has donated it space to host the first showing of our reef in October/November of this year so we have a very busy time in front of us.

We have groups interested in, and started working on

  • Recycled Materials Reef - to highlight rubbish,
  • Bleached Reef - highlighting the effect of global warming on the ecology of coral reef systems,
  • Main Hyperbolic Reef - a healthy reef in all it's splendour plus a few surprises.

We hope to feature information on each of these reef types in some upcoming posts.

Here are a few photos of the day.
