Guringai basket weaving

Proudly made by Lu

My daughter and I had the pleasure of attending an afternoon basket weaving course given by indigenous artist Karleen Green. It was part of the Guringai Festival in celebration of NAIDOC week. 

Mum's hairy effort

Karleen was a wonderful teacher and it was very special to have her share traditional grass weaving techniques with us. 

We've now planted our own weaving plants to continue the new passion. A beautiful way to share craft time with my daughter, calm and creative. Thanks Karleen.
