Towards Reconciliation
The workshop is not limited to weaving alone and involves a fuller cultural experience in a supportive, safe and comfortable environment. People are encouraged to ask cultural questions, including ones about Aboriginal diversity of language, art, cultural practices, food and beliefs. This is part of creating an environment towards building reconciliation.

The Workshop
Workshop Participants will learn about: Diversity of natural materials, Preparation of materials, Starting techniques, Secure beginning and ending stitches, Adding more materials to increase size, building a 2-dimensional shape, tapering off and ending the weave.

The Venue
Gallery One is an independent and not-for-profit community art gallery/teaching studio and one of the longest-running organisations of its kind in Australia (founded in 1974). This organisation, located within the Mitcham Cultural Village, is promoting and showcasing art and crafts with a strong community and art teaching focus driven by energy, motivation, passion and countless hours of many dedicated artists, art educators and volunteers.

Gallery One acknowledges that they meet on the traditional country of the Kaurna People and pay respects to Kaurna elders past, present and emerging. They recognise and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship with the land. They acknowledge that they are of continuing importance to the Kaurna people living today. They also extend that respect to other Aboriginal Language Groups and other First Nations.
This project is proudly supported by the City of Mitcham's Grants Program.

There are three dates available for the workshop: Saturday November 20, Sunday, November 28 & Saturday December 4.
The cost is $15 per workshop.

Your Comment
These make beautiful floor mats if they are large enough. They look too pretty to walk on though. Perfect as a cultural feature.
