Projects are an integral part of what weavery is about. Through projects, weavery is able to engage the wider community in creative work, to stimulate thought and conversation, and to involve participants in the processes of weaving. These processes are the lifeblood of weavery, they are the rivers which carry the wisdom of this ancient art form, they are the bearers of the healing energy which flows when engagement takes place. Being engaged in weaving makes us feel connected… a connection that facilitates healing.

to our local ecology..
July 2012. I have exciting news! The Regional Arts Development Fund of the Sunshine Coast Council has awarded me a grant to research weaving and dye fibres found in South East Queensland, and specifically, the Sunshine Coast. This research will be shared with you through blog posts with notes and photos on each weaving plant. You can find this blog attached to ‘Plantery’ in the main menu, named the A – Z of weaving plants.
to our community…
Sunshine Coast Council funding for a series of community-based workshops is coming to an end after presenting six six-week courses in Caloundra, Cooroora and Nambour. It is hoped that more of these opportunities may become available in the future to share the wisdom of weaving with a wider sector of our community.
