Workshop Day 1

This afternoon we started the weaving workshop with everyone being welcomed on county by Aunty Dianne Kerr. We all participated in smoking ceremony with special welcome to the Mapuru weavers to conduct their business on Wurundjeri country.

Aunty Di explained her possum skin cloak and the significance of each part of it and what or who it represented in her life.

After introduction to everyone, Roslyn explained the collection of pandanus and colour and the process of preparing material to weave with.

Looking forward to a special day weaving with everyone tomorrow

Special thank you to Aunty Di for such a warm and generous welcome.DSCF0662DSCF0670DSCF0689
