Reconciliation Week<br>Weaving Circle with Bianca Easton

Our weaving circles are a casual opportunity to come together to weave together in an inspiring environment with other like minded makers.  

For people who have attended our weaving workshops in the past, and those with some weaving experience – join us for Reconciliation Week for a get together to weave side by side, learn from each other and share skills.  We will have raffia, needles and scissors for your creativity.  Please feel free to bring existing projects and your own materials.

We are very grateful to have Bianca Easton on hand to give guidance and assistance.

  • Basic materials supplied (raffia and needles) – feel free to BYO other materials.
  • Light catering also provided.
  • Free but bookings required.
  • Suitable for ages 12+.  Under 18 year olds should be accompanied by an adult.
  • This session is designed for those with prior weaving experience, it is not a class. 
  • (Feel free to bring uninitiated friends, but understand that you will need to show them the ropes.)

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) 27 May to 3 June

The dates for NRW remain the same each year; 27 May to 3 June. These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively.

Bianca Easton is a proud Boon Wurrung woman who was born and raised in Naarm around the coast of the Bay. 

The coastline, waterways, plants, animals and County in general inspire my ever evolving  art practice and I am alway looking to learn more. 

I have also been very  fortunate and grateful to learn to weave from  Elders and other community members and now enjoy teaching others this craft, especially the next generation. 

I am passionate about art and being creative, and believe that it is incredibly healing, a way to reconnect with self, Culture, community and a valuable tool to help deal with trauma and to practise self care. 

We acknowledge the generous support of our public programming partners: Viva Energy Australia, Krystyna Campbell-Pretty and Family, and The Orloff Family Charitable Trust.
