Over the past year, JWA held three Bruny Making trips, during which team members spent a long weekend on Waterview - the working sheep farm home to Shearers Quarters and Captain Kelly's Cottage.
Held annually, these trips are a much celebrated and defining part of our culture. A chance for us to swap a computer screen for a tradie’s toolbox and spend time learning skills from local crafts & tradespeople. Since the inaugural trip in 2008 – a tree planting weekend – the projects have grown in ambition and complexity, much to the delight and determination of the team. The recent additions to the Waterview landscape include a stone bridge, pottery kiln, open-air bath house, carved bird installation, flag pole and a table built for the Bruny Island Community Hall.
