Women Only Arnhem Land Weaving Workshops 30 June - 11 July 2023
We are privileged to run trips to the remote Community of Mäpuru in East Arnhem Land. A unique opportunity to learn about Yolngu culture from Indigenous leaders passing on their traditional skills and knowledge in basket weaving and bush survival.
Twice a year we gather together a group of people and head out on the long and dusty Arnhem Highway. We take this journey in order to visit a small homeland community called Mäpuru. It is here that live our Yolŋu friends and adopted family who we have been working in partnership with for the past 12 years. We organise these trips in order to support our friends in making a meaningful living on country. In exchange they teach us what it means to live on and speak to the land; how to weave pandanas baskets; how the water tells its story of life through those very fibres we weave; and how we might actually be able to look at the world differently.
