Description


Join Wiradjuri woman, Peta-Joy as she shares her language skills by speaking and teaching Wiradjuri words, and gain insights into the social and cultural knowledge embedded in the traditional Indigenous coil weaving technique.

Since 2016, Peta-Joy has been weaving with the skills she learnt from Wiradjuri elder Aunty Lorriane Tye. Over time Peta-Joy has adapted her traditional coil weaving skills into many forms or art. From using recycled mediums to make practical objects, group works display in various forms, infusing these methods into fashion for a side project, and sharing the knowledge in workshops for all ages.

There is something magic when a group of people are sitting around weaving together, conversations that might not normally happen start happen, people start to get to know one another on a different level, then all of a sudden you also have a new creation in your hand that you have made with love and positive energy.

Depending on the group size, you can make individual pieces, or a collaborative work.
