Children learn about traditional weaving techniques – who wove, why and how, along with what was used. Each program offers one lead presenter face to face guiding children and educators in learning a tradition weaving stitch and create a modern piece using this technique to keep. Educators are given an opportunity to ask and see how this practice can be embedded into their service. All materials are included.
Single session: Basic introduction to traditional weaving, practical activity, and keepsake piece.
Three-session program: Introduction to traditional weaving with some development of weaving techniques. Each session offers a different weaving activity and keepsake piece.
Resurgence program: An in-depth investigation of traditional weaving delivered over 10+ weeks, culminating in a collaborative modern 2D artwork and an invitation to exhibit in an annual resurgence art gallery exhibition. Each session will include practical activity and opportunities to create keepsake items.
Resurgence program cost: $5500 (incl. GST along with TPL for 10 educators [with t-shirt or hat], Collaborative 2D sculpture, Weaving Education Kit, minimum 10 session with children and an invitation for piece to be displayed at the Resurgence Exhibition.)
