Have you ever wondered how people living on Country created the tools they needed to survive and thrive in the Sydney Basin?

The Dharug people of the western and northern areas of Sydney lived in many different environments and took advantage of surrounding materials such as stone, timber and fibre to make items for survival.

This workshop will provide children with hands on experience, working with these types of resources to make a functional stone axe. They will experiment and learn methods of sharpening a stone axe head and constructing and combining the materials together alongside the team from Stone and Bones.

Suitable for children 8-12 years old.

Stone and Bones works with and employs Aboriginal people teaching two-way learning, where the sciences of Indigenous peoples are presented in parallel with Western scientific interpretations. All the materials used in this activity have been collected from Sydney environments with the permission of local Aboriginal elders. Stone and Bones acknowledges the traditional owners of the land on which we work.
