Event description

Description

A unique chance to learn Boandik weaving from master weavers and participate in a community exhibition. This is a 6 week weaving course culminating in a community exhibition of work made my participants. Sessions are held 4.30-5.30pm between Thursday 14th February - 21st March. This activity has been developed in response to popular demand from the community.

Janice Rigney is a Boandik Elder who first learnt to weave with her grandmother at age 9. She is a member of the Southern Elders Weaving Group and will be sharing her skills and knowledge in weaving using reeds and contemporary raffia. Janice runs workshops in weaving across Adelaide with all age groups.

Janice says ‘I like to weave because its relaxing and a way to communicate with other people and cultures. It’s a chance to hand down the culture to future generations. For example I teach my granddaughters just like my grandmother taught me to keep the culture alive.’ She will be joined by her daughter and fellow weaver Lorna Collinson, a Ngarrindjeri and Boandik woman.

Please note: When booking only the start date of Thursday 14th February will show. Please select this date and make your booking. This payment includes all 6 sessions plus materials.
