Description

DESCRIPTION

A weekend of basketmaking using a selection of local fibres as well as raffia fibre dyed with natural dyes straight out of the bush in Arnhem Land. All materials will be provided.

The ancient practice weaving holds a practical wisdom that we can all use in our lives as a guide to living a more connected, integrated and creative life.

In this practice, everyone is a beginner, and we all journey together towards a place of togetherness and deep grounding. It is encouraged to participate in the whole weekend’s workshops, for the deepest experience. For those that are not able to, however, attending single workshops is possible.

This series of weaving experiences will incorporate the blending of indigenous traditions with René Bahloo’s contemporary twist. Our special Gunbalanya weaving family (Priscilla, Christine and Sylvia) will be co-facilitators at most of these workshops/circles to add an unforgettable ingredient to this recipe of creativity, spirituality, indigenous culture, nature and love.


Come and weave in healing and growth as you learn the skills of basketweaving. Absorb the wisdom offered through this unique and fun practice, in the energy of togetherness. Come for a whole weekend, or come for a day - just come! All workshops include opportunities for social connection, personal growth, cultural sharing, grounding, skill development, mindfulness and creative play.

Note: Tea and coffee will be provided.

Accommodation Options: There is accommodation available for one person onsite at extra cost POA. Airbnb listings are available in the nearby vicinity for those wishing to stay over, as well as camping and cabins in the nearby tourist park.
