Mothers had a chance to work with Amy Pychtin of Bright and Bubbly Cakes at Communities for Children where they tried their hand at cake decorating.
“I’d never done anything like it before and really enjoyed being creative,” participant Kerstie Ball said.
Since 2006 when the group began, Communities for Children has provided an opportunity for Indigenous mums to come together to learn new skills.
“It provides opportunities for mothers to have meaningful experiences with their children to teach and learn with them,” coordinator Maree Thomas said.
“It’s an opportunity to build confidence and to get a good education”.
“It creates a resource to put back into the community which is culturally appropriate.”
The group meets every fortnight from 10am to 1pm on a Friday at Wellington Public School Preschool.
It is a government initiative run from position with Council and Centacare, Wilcania and Forbes.
If young mums want to come they are welcome. They can call WACHS at 68 45 35 45 or Maree at 68 40 12 34.
