Event description
March pandanus coil weaving at Mt Coot-Tha botanic gardens in Brisbane

About this Event

WHAT: Using pandanus fibre straight from Arnhem Land, we will create a coiled basketling, pendant or earrings which are especially beautiful.

This is an opportunity to experience the ancient art of basket weaving as a deeply mindful and heart connecting practice. It is a space of sharing, creating, being and breathing, conducted through ceremony and celebration of life. Using natural materials from the land, you will learn to weave individual strands of fibre together to form a whole creation, while recognising and acknowledging the mirrors and metaphors that bind us together with nature and each other. Like a weave within a weave, this has the power of revealing a way of being that is nurturing, growthful, enlightening and honouring of the energy of creation. Together we will weave baskets that hold in their fibres all of the stories we share, flowing in symphony with the songs of nature as they unfold around and within us.

THE FIBRE: Pandanus spiralus - 'kunngobarn' in Gunwinjku language. The fibre included in this workshop is the best in the world (imho)- hand harvested and dyed in Indigenous country (Arnhem Land's famous rock country), thus the workshop calls for a slightly higher fee than usual.

$115

Please bring lunch to share, and a chair if you need one. We will be seated on the grass under a huge fig tree, on weaving mats.

Take-home pandanus is available to buy at an extra cost, if needed. See ticket info for details.
