Basket Weaving Workshop with Emma-Jane’s Weaving
May 15 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$75
Emma-Jane Hunt, is a Yjindibarndi and Djaru woman with both traditional and ancestral links to both the Pilbara and Kimberly regions of Western Australia. Emma-Jane was taught to weave when living in the East Pilbara by Martu Weavers from the Western Desert.
Basket weaving is a part of women’s business practices so Emma-Jane only shares this technique amongst females.
Over the past 8 years, Emma-Jane has kept her techniques as close to what she was taught as possible. She is grateful for being taught these weaving techniques and is passionate about keeping this cultural practice alive by confidently sharing this with other females.
Join Emma-Jane Hunt, as she teaches you the art and technique of basket weaving. By the end of the workshop, you will have the skills and materials to complete your own basket.
With the invitation to display your finished baskets during Reconciliation Week (27 May – 3 June) at GSAC.
The workshop will be held Saturday 15th May | 11 am – 2 pm | $75 per person
