First stop was Brisbane's Hamilton Ward where Rebecca, Steph, Freda and Dawn took us on their creative journey's. We were encouraged to join crafting groups, think about exhibiting our work, inspired to re-purpose materials and other found objects and of course, to say "I can do that" to any new project that came our way! ( Thanks Freda)
