Wadawurrung Coil Baskets Workshop at the Rare Trades Centre

Learn traditional weaving techniques with Wadawurrung woman, Tammy Gilson.

In this half-day workshop, you will learn to make a coil basket using recycled and re-purposed materials. This sustainable practice turns something old into something useful and beautiful drawing on Tammy’s cultural practice.

Tammy will walk you through the process of wrapping and stitching the materials to build your basket.

At the end of the workshop, you will take home your finished basket and your newfound knowledge of this traditional basketry technique.

Held at Ballarat’s Australian Centre for Rare Arts and Forgotten Trades, a world-class facility dedicated to learning and preserving Australia’s rare arts and trades through a series of workshops, masterclasses, events, and residencies.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
