Bush Animals, by Bronwyn Razem, image courtesy the artist

Join Gunditjmara Artist & Master Weaver Bronwyn Razem for a day of sharing knowledge of traditional weaving passed on through her Gunditjmara family heritage.

In the morning, Aunty Bronwyn will teach you how to sculpt hay with wool to create a Bush Animal with real personality, inspired by the Tjanpi Desert Weavers.

Later, she will take you through traditional weaving techniques to make baskets, while we sit together, yarn and connect.

Drop into MPavilion for any or some of the time and feel free to bring a packed lunch!

In collaboration with

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
