Barossa Nanna and the Rainbow Roosters – A Colour Collage

This eBook combines easy to follow instructions for this inexpensive craft with a structured collage for children to count the Rainbow Roosters and identify their rainbow colours.

The primary aim of the book is as a colour tool for children to discover and explore the images. The secondary purpose is to support the older reader to discover and experiment with Collage.

Collage is about reinventing and recycling and repurposing. It’s a magical process which invites and encourages collecting, combining, experimenting; transforming with everyday materials.

Heather engages the reader with the background to Collage and conveys concern about Covid-19 circumstances through a brief journal of collage projects and a questionnaire about being ready to be a chook ‘herder’.

A digital version of the original composition from the artist’s own collection using colour photographs, old birthday cards and paint colour swatches.

Unique handmade original concertina counting book created for Rayne.

This digital version to share with those who enjoy crafting, especially collage, and using their imaginations.

A foray into #quarantinecrafts with easy-to-follow instructions and minimalist resources.

For the older reader, at the back of the book, there are a few thoughts about keeping chooks.
