7 March, 2023 - Talk - Life 73 degrees North on Baffin Island
Tim Trehearn and his wife Mary Frances left Cairns in 1989 to teach on Baffin Island in Canada. They spent two years in Arctic Bay which lies at 73 degrees north and it is dark there for three months of the year. The community of 500 Inuit people still hunt caribou, seal and narwhale for food and skins. Global warming has caused many changes to their traditional way of life with polar bears being particularly affected.
We will be using various techniques including stamping, embossing and layering. Also there is a machine that cuts out all the shapes eliminating tedious scissor work. November will be Christmas cards. All tools and equipment are provided.
Cost is $10 to cover materials. Please bring cash on the day.
