ABOUT THE WORKSHOP: Join René on her journey as you weave a basket with weeds and waste plants from the garden - cats claw, palm inflorescence, leaf sheaths, etc.
René approached weaving from a holistic perspective, actively facilitating community connection, life skills and wellbeing through the active meditation of basket weaving.
Take home your creation at the end of the session!
ABOUT RENE: René Bahloo is an artist, facilitator and project coordinator, with a special interest in the Indigenous practices and philosophy of basket weaving using natural fibres.
René is a weaver, a teacher, a learner and an artist.
She shares her knowledge through weaving circles and facilitates grassroots journeys to remote Indigenous Australian and African communities, for deep connection to land, culture, healing and traditional weaving. Her practice also incorporates yogic philosophy and practice which often intertwines with her art (and her workshops).
