Bush Animal Weaving Workshops - Ages 3+ years


Come and join Ronnie Jordan a Kalkadoon Pitta Pitta woman who will share her traditional ecological knowledge with you. Enjoy a hands-on experience where you and your child can each create a woven bush animal. The workshop inspires a connection to Aboriginal culture, and both children and adults will learn techniques of the age-old art of traditional weaving. All materials of wool and straw will be supplied. Plus you'll receive a weaving pack to take home. Do note that children aged 3-7 years must be accompanied by a participating adult. Get your tickets here , ($59.11 adults and $32.74 ages 3-12 yrs), and choose from four workshops on 18 & 19 April 2024; one at 10am and another at 1pm on each date - runs for two hours each at the Banksia Centre, Australian National Botanic Gardens, Clunies Ross St, Acton, ACT. Before you begin, why not get in a little early and explore the Gardens where you might be inspired to create something truly unique!
