All kinds of drawing.



The upcoming Perth Dry Stone Festival is ‘drawing' more and more people. We are pleased to have Ireland's own, Paul Phaid Cunningham with us this week, from Donegal, who was one of the key masons involved in the recently completed, one-of-a-kind, 15 foot high, stone map of Ireland.
One-of-a-kind monument to Ireland’s culture, mythology, craft, history and social identity unveiled in Donegal

In the photo above this one of the stone map, Phaid has a ‘drawing' in his hands of what we will be building this week, trying to get an idea of the overall plan.


One of the cool things about this year's festival is the food. The marvellous meals are being provided by Carol Ann McNeil and Andrea Cross. 


And speaking of ‘drawing’ another cool thing about the meal time gatherings are the pens and drawing paper tablecloths available at each table, where wallers can freely draw and exchange ideas and designs while they are eating.


Here we are playing a drawing game where each of us select a secret stone on the table without pointing at it and then try to sketch it until someone guesses the one we’ve chosen.
