Weave with the Artists
– Boolarng Nangamai

Listen, weave and learn in this in-depth workshop with artists from string theory. Create your own basket, learning the vocabulary of weaving and the value of connecting to Country. Learn from Jodi Edwards about her South Coast Aboriginal perspective and Kelli Ryan Founder of Boolarng Nangamai, as they share stories of ‘Together Dreaming’ inspiration and spark participants to harness their own creative connections.

“Boolarng Nangamai means ‘together dreaming’ and comes from the Biripi and Dharawal languages of NSW. The name strongly represents who they are and how inclusive they are in the sharing of their artistic and cultural knowledge” – Tess Allas, string theory catalogue

Installation view, string theory; Focus on contemporary Australian art, 2013
