Weaving Workshop

Learn patience and understanding through traditional weaving

Weaving has been used as a method to create all kinds of tools including food tools, baskets, jewellery, fishing nets and skin cloaks. Through the process of weaving, one can learn patience and understanding and how we as human beings are woven into this world as fragile threads of earth. Our weaving workshops can be tailored to the individual.

Traditional Aboriginal weaving is of great importance to Aboriginal women. Learn how to weave, what each tool is used for, and educate yourself about the significance of weaving! We guarantee you’ll learn a whole lot about the importance of weaving in Aboriginal culture and the act of women coming together to create tools like these! Our weaving program is specialised and is taught by our dedicated staff who have deep knowledge and want to share it with you, too.
