Helen Price is a Queensland-based Indigenous artist, from Darumbal country. Price’s art uses the symbols of nature to share stories about our own life’s journeys. In Come In For A Yarn we notice animal prints alongside different sizes of human feet. Everyone is welcome here!

What a way to welcome!By: Bella on 10 July 2018This mat is not only gorgeous and recycled, but it is THE BEST way for me to welcome participants to the workshops that I do (in Mental Health, Wellbeing, Suicide Prevention). What we do is help empower people to have conversations, so we love to set the tone by asking them to "Come in for a yarn". Ordering was easy and delivery was fast- even to W.A. Thanks Recycled Mats, I LOVE it!
