Wayapawarr Watnanda Marangee Weaving Workshop with Aunty Bronwyn Razem
This workshop is run by Wayapawarr Watnanda Marangee :
Aunty Bronwyn is one of the fabulous First Nations weavers of the Wayapawarr Watnanda Marangee project—our response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We invite everyone to engage their hands and hearts, and be part of creating a giant tapestry of woven circles to show our resilience, feel empowered and bring about personal transformation in this time of insecurity and anxiety.
Wayapawarr Watnanda Marangee means ‘we all come together in a meeting’, in Gunditjmara language. Although we cannot come together physically, our project joins community members across all ages, genders and abilities who find themselves in self-isolation, via the ancient art of weaving. Our project invites you to learn a traditional weaving technique, weave circular ‘meeting places’ and decorate public spaces with your woven creations.
Participants will require basic tools and materials for this workshop, information on these will be shared with you after registering your attendance.
1 session available, August 24th, 12.30 – 2pm. Register here.
