Bibbulmun Women's Weaving Class
Lea Taylor is an award winning Aboriginal weaver and artist from the Wadandi/Minang nations of South West Western Australia. Lea was taught basic basket weaving by noted Aboriginal artist Sharyn Egan, and now works full-time as an artist and weaver, working with Aboriginal youth in schools and youth groups, along with running workshops in art centres and independently throughout W.A. In Lea’s workshops she uses a variety of natural materials, including natural raffia, hand dyed raffia, which she dyes herself using both natural and commercial dyes, natural string (Jute), paper raffia hay and foraged bush materials. All basic materials are supplied This class is suitable for individuals aged 13 and up. Please arrive 10 minutes before the class starts. Due to the intricate starting process of weaving, late comers will not be permitted to join a class that has already begun. Tickets available at Eventbrite.
