Speaking In Colour - Online Weaving

Speaking2

2 hour online workshop

Participants will learn contemporary indigenous weaving techniques, how and when and why it was done, with the opportunity to create a woven keepsake. All the materials will be posted to you once you have enrolled.

As ATASDA is hosting this workshop for a third party, there will be no refunds.

Please note there will be an additional postage fee . You will be informed by email of the cost of postage to your location after you register. 

ATASDA NSW is also planning a 2-day face-to-face workshop in Sydney in early 2022. This online workshop is not a prerequisite but will give you a taste.

 

Jaimie Carpenter is a proud Kamilaroi (Quirindi) woman who resides on Awabakal land (Newcastle). Together with her daughters, she is active in the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community promoting cultural practices. In her words: I believe that building strong communities who understand aboriginal perspectives and culture are a key to reconciliation.. There are big changes happening with indigenous practices becoming the norm in society and it is my privilege to be part of that movement.
