Bush Toys is a very simple form making technique, which uses native grass and brightly coloured wool with a contemporary weaving style to create 3D animal shapes. The concept originated from the central desert of the Northern Territory. It was developed as a community capacity building initiative to significantly aid Aboriginal women living in remote communities gain financial Independence through the creation, sale and exhibiting of new contemporary art works. It was such a significant success that it was then adapted and developed to help school students take concept to form in a fun and stress free learning environment

The students will learn about recycling, the environment, local plants, and the basics of exhibiting art.
