About the workshop

Join textile designer Chantal Henley in this weaving adornment workshop that highlights the significance of retaining First Nations design fundamentals and how those techniques continue to inspire and survive many mainstream trends, fads and fictions.

Participants will work under Chantal’s guidance to create one-off woven adornments translated through sustainable resources and techniques.

What you'll get:

  • All materials required provided
  • A personalised piece of woven body adornment
  • Afternoon tea and refreshments

What to bring:

  • An old t-shirt you’d like to upcycle
