This workshop starts with an introduction to the history and significance of weaving in Aboriginal culture. This includes the traditional techniques, materials used, and the cultural significance of weaving in storytelling, cultural practices, and daily life.

This workshop aims to provide participants with a hands-on experience of traditional Aboriginal weaving, while also fostering an understanding and appreciation of Aboriginal culture, art, and traditions.

This workshop will operate for groups maximum of 10 persons. 


Participants are provided with materials and tools to practice weaving themselves. The instructor provides guidance and assistance as needed, helping participants to create their own small woven piece, such as a coaster, bracelet, or small basket.

Demonstration of Techniques: The instructor demonstrates basic weaving techniques, such as starting a weave, creating different patterns, and finishing a weave. Participants observe and learn the techniques through demonstration and explanation.

Storytelling and Cultural Context: Throughout the workshop, the instructor may share stories, songs, or cultural practices related to weaving. This helps to deepen participants’ understanding of the cultural significance of weaving in Aboriginal culture.

Reflection and Discussion: Towards the end of the workshop, there may be a reflection session where participants can share their experiences, ask questions, and discuss the cultural aspects of what they have learned.
