Touching, feeling and thinking ‘place'

I was not consciously aware that I only ever considered plants indigenous to this place as Mark Making Tools. Yesterday, I spent 4 hours pulling out fishbone fern. Over the years there have been numerous workdays on this property, clearing fishbone fern, broad leaf paspalum and lantana that is invading the forest. I watched the video and there was fishbone fern . . . I did a double take! I am rethinking their ‘place’; the erosion mitigation of fishbone fern and broadleaf paspalum and the swarms of butterflies on lantana flowers . . . and perhaps I could use them as mark making tools . . .

Brush & Mark Making Made Easy

Thank you for this course, it was inspiring and I loved it. I would never have thought to make my own brushes but Anne made it easy to follow and it wasn't intimidating.

Anne continuously thinks outside the box when it comes to nature craft.
I've followed her weaving, eco dyeing, basket weaving and now brush making tutorials. She's so creative! I find her tutorials and workshops straightforward to follow and am continuously in awe of her knowledge of the natural world. Creating with Anne Harris calms me, provides me with new skills and insight and takes me to my happy place.
Thank you.
