The second Marine Debris workshop hosted at Arts Ceduna in 2016 brought forth an impressive 4 x 4 meter blue swimmer crab titled Guldamara. Twelve artists and volunteers created this artefact with facilitators Sue Ryan and Karen Hethey at Arts Ceduna. Guldamara’s frame was created from wire and bamboo, followed by layers of marine debris materials and fibres that were handstitched onto the frame. Natural Resources Alinytjara Wilurara, Ghostnets Art Project and Country Arts SA partnered with Arts Ceduna in the creation of this artefact that was completed in twenty working days and will be displayed at Tandanya, Country Arts SA in Port Adelaide and the Tarnanthi festival in Adelaide. This project was generously supported by Country Arts SA, Natural Resources Alinytljara Wiluṟara and Ghostnets Project.
