Charlie is passionate about connecting past to present and making learning about Australia’s First Peoples fun and entertaining. Charlie currently facilitates Indigenous art workshops with Koori Kinnections.

What you’ll get:

  • Opportunity to tap into the oral narrative of Aboriginal cultures

  • Demonstration from an experienced weaver and educator

  • Hands-on weaving experience

  • A woven basket that you handcrafted
