Facilitating conscious community...

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.



expanding the circle

This is a project planned for the second half of 2013, in partnership  with Nungeena Aboriginal Corporation for Women’s Business, Mimburi association, Goombuckar Indigenous Cultural Centre and Art Gallery, and Caloundra Community Centre. Thanks to the Sunshine Coast Council for funding this experience.


For Indigenous, non-Indigenous and multicultural women, this project is a thirteen-week ‘weaving wellbeing’ cross-cultural experience in which the creative, technical, conceptual and therapeutic aspects of basket weaving and fibre art will be shared, through community weaving circles.  A number of dedicated ‘multi arts workshop days’ will be woven into the program, where invited guest artists will contribute their knowledge and skills (singing, jewellery making, dancing, painting, drumming and creative bush tucker cooking), alongside the regular weaving circles. The ‘Weave Heal Connected – Expanding the Circle’ project will culminate in a ‘creative and cultural immersion’ retreat as well as a family day gathering. The retreat and adjoining family day will be a pilot experience with an eye to developing a sustainable outcome in the future, where income from the retreat will go towards funding the family day gathering.
