The North Melbourne Language & Learning (NMLL) at 33 Alfred St, North Melbourne is the venue for the Weaving Workshop on 17 May 2017 from 6-9pm. Tickets are $35 and $25 for concession and children over 12 years old. Grab your tickets HERE before they run out.

On the day, you'll learn the traditional basket weaving techniques of Burundi, Africa, and you'll make a simple pair of earrings or a coaster to take home. You'll be taught enough skills to continue weaving projects at home, independently. Colodetha and Victoria form Sisterworks, a non-profit social enterprise will be your instructors. Sisterworks supports women who are migrants, asylum seekers or refugees to become financially independent and happily settled in Australia.

The evening will include a delicious meal of Injera bread and traditional curries. This workshop being a part of the Connecting Cultures program that runs at NMLL, it aims to provide a place where community members from diverse cultures come together and celebrate their diversity. The workshops provide a platform for the sharing of stories, traditions, and art based practices.
