Using Lomandra Longifolia fibre straight from the land, we will create a two-stand twist-woven medicine pot in this beautiful Brisbane workshop. This will be a ceremonial sacred space where you will be nurtured and held safely in a circle of like-minded souls, sharing and breathing and creating together.

This is an opportunity to experience the ancient art of basket weaving as a deeply mindful and contemplative practice. It is a space of sharing, creating, being and breathing, conducted through ceremony and celebration of life.

Using natural materials from the land, you will learn how to weave individual strands of fibre together to form a whole creation, while recognising and acknowledging the mirrors and metaphors that bind us together with nature and each other. Like a weave within a weave, this has the power of revealing a way of being that is nurturing, growthful, enlightening and honouring of the energy of creation.

Together we will weave baskets that hold in their fibres all of the stories we share, flowing in symphony with the songs of nature, as they unfold around and within us and you will take this beautiful creation home.

Please bring snacks to share, and a chair, blanket or cushion to sit on.

Optional premium pandanus (a different fibre to what we will be using) is available to buy at an extra cost if needed.
