Digital Photograph - Relaxation Workshop, Women on Farms Gathering, Ouyen, 1998 Reg. No: MM 91554
- Photograph taken during a workshop at the 1998 Ouyen Women on Farms Gathering. The workshop was titled 'Tension and Relaxation' and gave women the opportunity to learn about massage technique. Over the weekend twenty-five workshops were held covering a large range of subjects, from practical farm skills to relaxation. For many women, nurturing workshops such as this relaxation workshop offered a welcome distraction from the stresses at home: 'At home we had no money, no rain and almost no hope', wrote participant Valerie Colbert in a 2004 reflection, 'but I was loved by everyone at the Gathering like a sister'.
