Lantern Lights

Simple but effective, a lovely lantern will be created using patterned paper and plastic water bottles.  These lanterns will be scattered around the Fire & Water event grounds and will provide a lovely flicker of pretty lights.

 




 

Create a Ribbon Wand

Ribbon wands have long been used in performance and create beautiful wispy colour movements.  Create your colourful ribbon wand to bring along to the Fire & Water performance event.

 

 

     

Creation of a traditional sand Mandala by Tibetan Monks       

As part of our exploration of what it means to be Indigenous to a place and how culture can be practiced outside our  place of origin, witness Tibetan monks creating a stunningly beautiful sand mandala. Millions of grains of brightly coloured sand are placed with great skill and patience using a metal funnel called a chak phur to form intricate geometric designs. The mandala will remain on display as part of the Indigenous exhibition.
