Weaving Together is a shared workshop hosted by creative artist Dr Sarah Jane Moore and scientist Luke Steller. Sarah Jane will join us from her home studio in Tasmania and weave with nature based materials whilst Luke with join from UNSW and bring his own materials harvested from fieldwork and beyond. Moving away from the original mindset of weaving just to make a finished product, here in this workshop you can sit with Sarah Jane and Luke to learn how the process of weaving can un-weave capitalist / self-centered / goal oriented learnings that we have all picked up in our lives.
Bring foraged materials, wool, plastic, tape, string and your imaginations to join together and weave for well being, weave for inclusion and weave together in a friendly, safe and community minded digital space where sharing is key.
