ReWild is excited to be hosting a Weekend of Weavery in conjunction with renowned fibre Artist Rene Bahloo of Weavery.
A Weekend of Weavery is a two day program which includes the identification of fibre/ weaving plants in our local environment, the sustainable harvest of weaving materials, how to prepare fibres for weaving and learning the skills to transform Earth Life into practical, useful and beautiful vessels.
Over the weekend you will Connect to the Earth through the primitive skills of weaving and basketry, learn to identify plants, be supported by skilled mentors in an intimate group of participants in a beautiful natural environment.
Rene` Bahloo is the empress of Weavery. She is a weaver, a teacher, a learner and an artist. She weaves with the fibre of flow and meaning, spiralling ever outwards in order to manifest beauty and joyful wellbeing, like a spider spins her masterpiece. She invites others to gather in community, teaching cultural skills and sharing the active meditation of basket weaving, in a nurturing and supportive environment, Rene`'s passions stem from her life-altering experience of Australian Indigenous culture in Arnhem Land, Australia. She loves and lives women's business, environmental connectedness, creative perspectives, the weaving of conscious, joyful cummunities and the magical journey of life. These passions have led to a Doctorate in Creative Arts, where she will complete a synergetic novel novel based on Indigenous culture, women's business and weaving journeys to wisdom. Her goal is for us all to weave our world into a better place, to weave ourselves in healing and wellbeing, to weave our environment with passion and purpose.
