Come sit with them under the trees at Yarrawarra and learn the various traditional weaving techniques of the Gumbaynggirr People.

Apprentice Weaver and Gumbaynggirr Artist, Lilly Clegg, teaches a different weaving style each month and provides all the fibres and decorations, but always welcomes people bringing fibres of their own to use or share and they always appreciate donations of Bangalow Palm Fronds (the chunky ends) for making water-carriers.

Cost is AUD30 per person.
