Waybarra Gidyira @ The Rocks


09 Sep | 2 hours Sideshow - Bay 43

Fringe is building something.

Fringe is building something. Coil by coil an animal emerges from our collective yarning. Her plumage made of our stories of reconciliation and respect.

Join Wiradjuri Yinaa (woman), Peta-Joy as she shares her language skills by speaking and teaching Wiradjuri words, and gain insights into the social and cultural knowledge embedded in the traditional Indigenous coil weaving technique.

A 2-hour hands-on coil weaving workshop for participants to immerse themselves in traditional weaving practice and have a good old yarn. Leave your finished coil to be added to The Sydney Fringes community made artwork and newest Fringe friend, Dinawan (Emu.)

From the Artist: “There is something magic when a group of people are sitting around weaving together, conversations that might not normally happen start happen, people start to get to know one another on a different level, then all of a sudden you also have a new creation in your hand that you have made with love and positive energy."
