NAIDOC 2024: Marngrook Making

Marngrook, the original AFL football, is a traditional aboriginal game and this year you're invited to join this unique Marngrook Making workshop. As part of this workshop participants will be guided by RBGV's Aboriginal Program Officer, Jaffa Richardson, to prepare and sew possum skins to create their very own Markgrook to take home. All materials are supplied.
