Ghost Net Weaving Workshop
Learn traditional weaving techniques from artists from the Torres Strait. Facilitated by Lynnette Griffiths, the Artistic Director of Erub Arts, in conjunction with Melanie Katsalidis from Pieces of Eight.
Together you will make a large-scale woven artwork from ghost net – harmful fishing nets that have been discarded in the ocean by fisherman – while learning about traditional culture and weaving techniques.
The work will be part of an exhibition at ANU opening on 5 May. You’ll also get to take home a weaving kit to continue your new weaving skills at home.
Includes communal lunch.
Places are limited to just 20 spots.
