A 2 hour hands-on weaving workshop for kids and families. Immerse yourself in traditional weaving practice, have a yarn and leave your work to be added to our Dinawan(Emu.)

Join Wiradjuri Yinaa (woman), Peta-Joy as she shares her language skills by speaking and teaching Wiradjuri words, and gain insights into the social and cultural knowledge embedded in the traditional Indigenous coil weaving technique.

From the Artist “There is something magic when a group of people are sitting around weaving together, conversations that might not normally happen start happen, people start to get to know one another on a different level, then all of a sudden you also have a new creation in your hand that you have made with love and positive energy."
