The Weaving Project

PYT | Fairfield is working with Parents Cafe and Fairfield City local Aboriginal Land Council affiliated womens group, Guntawang Inc. to deliver an eight week workshop that teaches traditional Aboriginal weaving techniques to migrant women from Iraq and Syria. The project gives these women the opportunity to connect and engage with their new community. The participants are taught craft skills but also get the chance to meet others, build social networks and learn about Australian culture.

Dates: 11th of February – 1st of April

An exhibition of their work will be presented at PYT Fairfield sometime in April.
