The Wonderlands (Sea) - Magnetic Calendar Set, adorned with the captivating artwork of contemporary Aboriginal artist Daisy Hill, is a vibrant and educational addition to any classroom. This set comprises two sheets totalling 89 die-cut pieces, including days, months, seasons, and weather symbols, all of which are designed to be used on a whiteboard.
Each sheet measures 400 x 600mm and is laminated, allowing for durability and repeated use. The magnetic pieces can be easily moved and arranged, providing a hands-on learning experience for students.
Proudly designed and manufactured in Australia, this calendar set not only serves as a functional educational tool but also as a platform for cultural artwork, making it a unique and culturally enriching resource for teaching time and date concepts.
The designs in the Wonderlands collection will evoke joy, inspire learning, engage, and honour the connections with our native Australian flora and fauna. In collaboration with Aboriginal Artist, Daisy Hill and in celebration of our First Nations people and children, this collection was designed to help us learn, understand, appreciate, and respect the cultural traditions and knowledge that has been passed down for thousands of years.
It is important to note that the symbols and stories shared are unique to Daisy Hill and her own interpretations and do not represent all First Nations people. All Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural groups have different perspectives, interpretations and understandings of stories and knowledge passed down to them.
About the Artist
Daisy Hill is an Aboriginal artist and proud descendant of the Muruwari people from NW NSW, currently living on Yugambeh Country (Gold Coast). Daisy's art style can be described as modern and contemporary. She paints intuitively, the same way her ancestors did. Daisy feels an overwhelming connectedness to her thoughts, feelings and spirit when she paints. She describes the painting process as being deeply spiritual and meditative. Daisy has a passion to tell stories and strives to keep the traditions of her people alive. “It is a way for me to feel connected to the Motherland - the trees, water, sand, sun, earth and animals. I paint to convey the beauty I see in all things and to express my gratitude and acknowledge the Country I am walking, living and breathing. I feel so grateful that people want to invest in me and my culture,” says Daisy.
