Acknowledgement of country

Batchelor Institute would like to acknowledge and pay respect to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander sovereign people of the lands on which our campuses are located. As we share our knowledge, teaching and learning and engage in research practices within this Institution and/or conduct business with a variety of external agencies and organisations, we must always pay respect to the sovereign status of our hosts. May their Ancestors always be remembered and honoured, their Elders listened to and respected, all members treated with dignity and fairness — in the present and well into the future.

We also acknowledge and pay respect to the knowledge embedded forever with our hosts, custodianship of country and the binding relationship they have with the land. Batchelor Institute extends this acknowledgment and expression of respect to all sovereign custodians — past, present and emerging. By expressing Acknowledgement of Country we encourage all to extend and practice respect to all First Nations people wherever their lands are located.

New Equipment Means New Course Offerings
21 November 2023
3 minute read

This week, students enrolled in the CUA10320 Certificate I in Visual Arts developed skills to create their own designs and screen print their unique designs on to materials.

Eylene Farrell from Minyerri developed two screens overlapping her design and making great use of colours incorporating her dreaming “brown snake" and her dad's skin name 'Balung". She designed the t-shirt for her dad, but it also included bush medicine which she remembered her mum used to give her when she was younger.

Learning to screen print enables students to have another skill to produce their artwork on and to be able to do this back in the community. Eylene was excited about using her fabric she printed to make a bag and was looking forward to her family purchasing a sewing machine so she can use the fabric to make items for herself but also to sell.

2024 will see an increase to screen printing workshops on Batchelor Campus with the introduction of our new Indigenous dress making short course.

A new UV light exposure box was purchased through the VET Equipment Grant funding by the Department of Industry Tourism and Trade. This piece of equipment assists our students to expose the screens ready for pirnting their designs.
