I’m posting this from Katherine, in the Northern Territory. The Internet is a bit slow in the outback so will add links when I’m better connected!
Gorgeous sunset at Darwin Harbor, Northern Territory, Australia.

I’m on holidays for a month (all of August) in the Northern Territory.

I’m heading to Katherine in an hour or so for Barthula Webs; an artists weekend. There will be art and indigenous craft workshops - including a shibori workshop, using natural local dyes from the bush.

More photos and posts to come as my travels continue.

I’ve been traveling in the Northern Territory for the past couple of weeks.

Even managed to fit in some shibori dyeing!

I have limited Internet access so my posts are limited too; while up in the NT, Australia.

I’m off to Arnhem Land for two weeks with extremely limited Internet so will post again when I am back.
