Event description

Description

This is a special opportunity to share a weekend of with traditional weavers from Arnhem Land as they journey to the Sunshine Coast in Australia. These special weavers travel once a year to Weavery HQ, where Rene Bahloo hosts them as part of her family, to share their culture, hearts, stories and traditional weaving practices with the wider community. They will share knowledge on fibre preparation, natural dyes and weaving techniques in this weekend. This is so much more than a weaving workshop for sharing and learning techniqes, it is an opportunity for healing through the telling of stories, sharing song, learning language and culture from a remote community in the Indigenous Australian bush. It is a nurturing and safe space to ask questions, relax, have fun and immerse yourself in a new energy as you create your own basket with naturally dyed pandanus fibre straight from the homelands.



It is anticipated (prefered) that participants will attend for the whole weekend, though there are limited spaces for drop-in attendance of a single day.
