A Basket Weaving Workshop. Now that sounds interesting, doesn't it?
Colour My Pot, that joyful centre of creativity in Cleveland in Brisbane's Redlands, is introducing yet another new workshop to extend your skills.
Partnering with Master Weaver, Maryann Talia Pau, whose name may be familiar as the person responsible for the hugely successful "One Million Stars to End Violence project" displayed in Brisbane City in 2018. Her efforts and passion towards this project earned her the prestigious Redlands Citizen of the Year 2019 Award.
Maryann is quoted as saying "For me, weaving is inherently innovative and healing. It is a special head, heart and hand language that demands agility, courage and good old fashioned patience. When I weave, with materials, words or ideas, I imagine my ancestors - their humour, wisdom and mischief and how it enriches my identity as an Australian with roots in Samoa."
In this evening workshop on Friday, July 26, you will be provided with a wealth of knowledge in the craft of basket weaving and will learn how to create a square based basket with pandanus leaves sourced from Samoa (approx. 23cm high × 15cm wide).
The workshop commences at 6pm with an expected finished time of 9pm.
Note that due to participants handling sharp objects closed in shoes must be worn. The workshop has limited availability which allows each person to receive plenty of individual attention and ensures you leave with a completed hand-woven basket.
And in more good news, Colour My Pot now has its own coffee machine. Yes! Gather some friends for a fun learning experience and plenty of laughs.
Workshop fee is $75.00 and tickets can be purchased here.
Colour My Pot is located at 39 Middle Street, Cleveland, with plentiful street parking.
