Event description

Description

Aboriginal people have been weaving for thousands of years. The process is both cultural and social, with a multitude of outcomes. To celebrate our new exhibition GADI and the important animals that sustained Gadigal people in the place we now call Sydney, we invite you to learn how to weave a fish from natural materials.

Led by Elders and master weavers Uncle Steve Russel and Aunty Phyllis Stewart, these unique workshops allow visitors to learn weaving techniques and ecological knowledge passed down for hundreds of generations.

Hear fascinating stories of Gadigal Sydney and take home your own handmade woven fish made with natural fibre!

These workshops are open to beginners, intermediate and master weavers. We will be having a 30 minute break for lunch. Bring your own lunch, or purchase from No. 1 William on level 4.

Times: 10am to 2:30pm
Tickets: Adult $80, Concession $72, AM Members $68 (Includes refreshments and museum admission)

This program is part of Weave, our Festival of Aboriginal & Pacific Cultures.
