  • 1 day 5 hours

Coil weave healing workshop and string technique basket making workshop 20 and 21 December, available as single workshops but best done together. Perfect for beginners as well as advanced weavers.

This is a opportunity to join René Bahloo from Weavery, to sit and weave together in circle. It’s much more than a skill-building, tuition-based workshop; it is a space where wisdom is shared, experienced and breathed together as the workshop unfolds itself, wrapped with the fibre of life as well as the fibre of nature, and deep human connection.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn and share, and celebrate our humanness and fibre together, as we weave ourselves together in loving connection.

You will learn to create a basket with pandanus fibre from Arnhem Land while immersing in deep connection to story, land, nature and to life.

10.30am till 3.30 pm. $120 pp

The workshop will be facilitated through means of a ceremonial space where you will be nurtured and held safely in a circle of like-minded beings, sharing and breathing and creating together.

This is an opportunity to experience the ancient art of basket weaving as a deeply mindful and contemplative practice. It is a space of sharing, creating, being and breathing, conducted through ceremony and celebration of life. Using natural materials from the land, you will learn to weave individual strands of fibre together to form a whole creation, while recognising and acknowledging the mirrors and metaphors that bind us together with nature and each other.

Like a weave within a weave, this has the power of revealing a way of being that is nurturing, growthful, enlightening and honouring of the energy of creation. Together we will weave baskets that hold in their fibres all of the stories we share, flowing in symphony with the songs of nature as they unfold around and within us.

Extra pandanus fibre will be available to buy on the day, if needed for future weaving projects or expansion of your current one.

Please bring a chair, cushion or mat to sit on, and something savoury to share for lunch.

Tickets can be booked online or by emailing to organise a direct deposit / cash. (direct deposit bypasses the eventbrite fee).
