What an engaging event! Great turn out! Great venue! ArtMakers Noosa will be remembered in the Floating Land memories.
First weekend both kids and parents got their hands very dirty. Giving form to creatures leaving under the surface by shaping local found clay is addictive. We ended up with more than 300 small coloured slipped sculptures and ready to dry before being fired in our “cones” firing night. Why do the theme “Under the surface” prompt people to make boats? The question still puzzles us!

Mid week: tough day ahead. First stack the sculptures in the cone shaped clay kilns.
Then cut the collected dead wood and circle the kilns tight. Cover the kilns with slipped newspaper sheets.
