Fab Feb festivities!
This month #underthestringybarks we showcase over 250 of the very best makers and creators Melbourne has to offer. From near and far stallholders come to create a craft revolution under the shady boughs of the beautiful Emu Plains Reserve in seaside Balnarring. With so much loveliness on offer this is a market not to be missed!!
Here's a few of the awesome things that make the #EPM so special
+ KRISTIN OLDS WEAVING CIRCLE 12pm to 2pm $50
Join Kristin in an intimate weaving circle under the stringy barks, learning the meditative art of Coil Weaving.
Coil Weaving is an ancient art form used by indigenous communities around the world to create functional and ceremonial baskets and art pieces.
During the two hour workshop, Kristin will guide you to make your own coiled piece, using natural materials such as hand dyed raffia, jute, hemp and nettle.
Kristin will also touch on how to dye your own materials using natural dyes made from local plants.
All materials will be provided.
Bookings required. Please head to https://www.instagram.com/kristinolds/
$10 from each ticket will go towards supporting the Arnhem Women Weaver's Group and their community. The Arnhem Women Weaver’s group was established in 2003 by two elders as a cultural and economic enterprise, passing on traditional textile skills to Balanda (white people), as well as enabling the community to be self-sustainable and remain on their ancestral lands.
