Learn how to craft a basket using native plants

Over four Saturdays in July, Centennial Parklands is throwing a two-hour weaving workshop to teach you the art of basket making – a craft passed through the generations by Indigenous Australians across clan groups. The workshops cost $40 each, or you can opt to attend all four sessions for $150. You’ll learn what tools and resources you need to weave a container or basket, and you’ll hear about the historic use of native plants in the process. The workshops are part of the Parkland’s NAIDOC Week celebrations. You can find more NAIDOC Week events taking place in Sydney right here.
