Join Tegan Murdock a local Aboriginal woman for a fun afternoon of learning basket weaving, then turning that basket weaving into a beautiful wall piece.
This beautiful craft has been passed down to me from my Mum. Weaving for us is very healing and a great way to sit and have a yarn.
We will create with raffia, emu feathers and quondong seeds. I’ll show you how to make string to hang your beautiful piece at home.
Keep it for yourself or gift it to someone special.
Please Note: Whilst we aim to help you complete your pieces within the class and most people do - everyone works at different speeds and you should not put any pressure on yourself. The focus is on the process and learning the techniques.
No previous experience is necessary.
All materials are provided including nibbles & refreshments.
STUDIO ADDRESS: Studio 4102 N.O 4 Daydream St Warriewood, NSW 2102.

ABOUT YOUR TEACHER
I am Tegan Murdock, a proud aboriginal woman; from my mother's side, a member of the Barkindtji nation, and on my father's side from the Yorta Yorta and Dhudhuroa nation. I grew up in Coomealla; my family moved often. In spite of that, our connection to our land and culture stayed strong. It stayed intact when I moved to Sydney, and it continues to shine within my family and community today.
I started weaving a few years ago after my mum, Margaret, taught me. From the moment I learn, I knew there was more to it that needed to be shared, so I started my business Ngumpie Weaving. Ngumpie is Barkindtji and translate to ‘beautiful’. My grandmother used to call me this when I was growing up. This name stuck with me and is now my brand. I make small pieces, mainly jewelry, and slowly moving into some bigger pieces. Weaving has enabled me to connect with culture whilst being away from my family. Every stitch within my work tells a unique story. Introducing weaving to community has become my life work.
