Weaving Story - Suzanne Connelly-Klidomitis

Suzanne is a Wiradjuri woman and master weaver, who introduces children, teachers and community to southern Australian Aboriginal culture, using language, greetings, acknowledgement of traditional owners, and teaching weaving skills.

The participants learn traditional coil weaving techniques and will create a sculpture wall of woven discs, and spear grass rods made of natural materials including native grasses, emu feathers and bark, combined with recycled products including rope and wire.

The sculpture will be used to tell a story of animals, birds or constellations and will be a songline for the classroom.
