Botanical Weaving Group

In the new Friends’ Special Interest Group (SIG) for ‘Botanical Weaving’, Friends will discover a haven where ongoing learning, discussion and practice of the craft of weaving occur. The cost for the informal meetings is a $5 donation for morning or afternoon tea (with a choice of two small group sessions).  All skill levels are welcome, including beginners.

The Botanical Weaving group meets on the fourth Sunday of the month, every second month at the Elliot Centre. In the alternate months, on the same Sunday, it is hoped to offer some paid workshops presenting different weaving activities, to add variety and creative stimulus to the group’s work. These workshops are open to other interested Friends and members of the public as well as Weaving group members.

In February and April this year, two Wild Weaving workshops, led by Indigenous artist Dr Jenine Godwin-Thompson, were offered at the Elliot centre. More recently in June, weavers enjoyed learning ‘How to Make a Dilly Bag’ with Boon Wurrung creative, Bianca Easton. This workshop will be repeated on Sunday 25 August. This technique is an easy one to learn and can be adapted to suit all abilities. For bookings and further information, please visit the booking page.

When we meet

Botanical Weavers meet on the 4th Sunday of the month, bi-monthly, at the Elliot Centre. The first meeting will be on Sunday 27 July, 2024.
