    Event description

    Yarn, Connect, Share : Connect with others while you share a yarn and weave with Murruwarri artist, Virginia Keft and finalist in the 2024 North Sydney Art Prize

    Weaving Connections provides a supportive environment in which to connect with others while sharing the fundamentals of weaving. The yarning circle is continuous and non-hierarchical - a harmonious, creative and collaborative space. To underpin the collective nature of the circle, participants, are invited to contribute woven pieces to a collaborative artwork.

    This workshop is for people 16 years and over. No prior experience is necessary; whether this is your first time or you are a master weaver, all are welcome.

    Bookings essential for this FREE workshop.

    Limited tickets available

    Please only book if you are sure can come along.
