Optional : Batik- Full Day Workshop

Batik is a traditional textile technique. A Pattern is applied in hot wax onto a piece of cloth, usually cotton. When the cloth is later dyed, those parts which have been treated with wax will not take up the dye: when the wax is removed a pattern of white lines will be left.

In a village just north of Ubud, Bali, Widya offers batik instruction, personal or in a workshop format, to locals and visitors alike, materials are provided. 

Full Day Batik Workshops: (Offered pre and post-conference): Experience a day creating your a unique batik design and fabric.

 

 

"I have taken this workshop, and it is one of the most satisfying workshops I have done. The experience takes place in a traditional Bali family compound which in itself is a learning experience. My daughter and I ended the day with a unique piece of art which brings back happy memories of the time I took the risk and learnt a new craft in Bali."  Gillian

Optional: Shopping for the classroom

Take a day and go shopping at Gianyar and Tegalalang.Tegallalang handicraft centre is famous for arts and crafts, located in the district of the same name just several kilometres north of the main Ubud hub. The Jalan Raya Tegallalang main road traverses 10.5km through this Bali heartland, and halfway you will find the famous scenic stopover on most day excursions to the northern parts of the island such as Kintamani via Ubud. Although agriculture still remains the primary source of living among locals, the area and surrounding villages

 

also produce a large variety of curios. Tegallalang handicraft centre owes to the various cottage industries found here, which deal with the manufacture and worldwide exports of an assortment of handicrafts and furniture items. It is not an overstatement to say that perhaps the Tegallalang route may also have the longest row of art shops in the world, making a drive along the main route a colourful one indeed.

Engaging in Practical Wisdom in Leadership

Aristotle discussed 'Practical Wisdom' as deliberating well about how to live a good life. He considered Practical wisdom to be ‘a true and reasoned state of capacity to act on the things that are good or bad for man’.  Paying attention to the choices we make as Leaders in the capacity of school manager, classroom educator or child is an essential element in creating balance and harmony in the way we live our lives. Gillian will introduce the conference and the choices made in designing the experience.

Augmented Reality (AR) Sandbox in an early childhood classroom.

Installing an Augmented Reality (AR) Sandbox in an early childhood classroom offers children an abundance of play opportunities. Real-time visualisations that represent spatial information on the sands physical surface, can create an immersive and open-ended tool for learning. So how do young children use an AR sandbox for play and share their experiences?

Rhys presents a case study documenting 4 and 5-year-olds play with the AR Sandbox in a Reggio Emilia inspired classroom in Perth. The findings present the children’s four key uses of the AR Sandbox for play; exploratory play, games, representational play and small world play. The findings are presented as a series of vignettes, mosaicking together the children’s photographs, Rhys’ photographs, their shared discussions and observations. The children’s meaningful participation with the research creates rich documentation of their mathematical thinking during play.

Gyotaku Japanese fish printing.

Gyotaku is a Japanese method of printmaking that traditionally utilizes fish, sea creatures or similar subjects as printing “plates” in its process. The literal translation of the word is “fish stone rubbing” and is believed to get its inspiration from Chinese stone rubbings of calligraphy, which gave rise to printing.

Gyotaku, or Japanese fish printing, was originally used to record and commemorate a fisherman’s catch. Prints were made using Sumi ink and Washi paper. It is rumored that Samurai would settle fishing competitions using Gyotaku prints. This original form of Gyotaku , as a recording method for fisherman , is still utilized today, and can bee seen hanging in tackle shops in Japan and Okinawa.

The Art of Shibori

Shibori is the Japanese word for a variety of ways of embellishing textiles by shaping cloth and securing it before dyeing.The word comes from the verb root shiboru, "to wring, squeeze, press." Although shibori is used to designate a particular group of resist-dyed textiles, the verb root of the word emphasises the action performed on cloth, the process of manipulating fabric. Rather than treating cloth as a two-dimensional surface, with shibori it is given a three-dimensional form by folding, crumpling, stitching, plaiting, or plucking and twisting. Cloth shaped by these methods is secured in a number of ways, such as binding and knotting. It is the pliancy of a textile and its potential for creating a multitude of shape-resisted designs that the Japanese concept of shibori recognises and explores. The shibori family of techniques includes numerous resist processes practised throughout the world.
