Enchanted Fairy Houses

Sam Welbourne is a local story of true success. When her primary school teacher called her parents in for a meeting to discuss the 12-year-old below-average NAPLAN results in reading and writing, her mother's solution to get her daughter to write more, was to suggest Sam wrote out the instructions on how to make her range of fairy houses, a favourite craft activity of Sam’s. This resulted in one of the world’s first children’s craft books on how to make fairy houses, published by Boolarong Press. Sam has used her book and her fairy houses to change lives, including to help fund the building of a library in Bungaya Village Bali. Join Samara to find out more about her exciting story and take a closer look at the art of making enchanting and magical fairy houses!
