Connect with Country through the practice of weaving with Wadawurrung woman and fibre artist Tammy Gilson at Ballarat's Centre for Rare Arts and Forgotten Trades. Your experience starts with a walk with Tammy along the Yarrowee River where the memories are held by her ancestors. See through Tammy’s eyes how Country makes her feel. Learn traditional ecological knowledge first-hand and connect with the resources and materials that will be used in the afternoon’s hands-on practice where you will learn Wadawurrung weaving techniques and make your own woven object under Tammy’s tuition.
