School Holiday Workshop

All Ages | Weave with Ngumpie Weaving artist Tegan Murdock to learn about traditional Aboriginal practices of purposeful and sustainable making.

A workshop with weaving, story and culture

Weaving is a traditional practice of purposeful and sustainable making. Aboriginal people use natural materials such as long grasses, gum nuts, flowers and leaves to weave baskets for gathering food and other materials, as coolamons to carry babies or place ochres in for painting in ceremony, as well as for decorative reasons for performance, corroboree and to express their identity.

You will learn the importance of weaving and how Aboriginal people have used this craft to weave important things for our people to source food and provide for family. You will also learn about different techniques and how all mobs across Australia use similar ways of weaving.
