Sonya will share with you the rich cultural tradition of weaving and the importance of weaving for Ngarrindjeri and Ngadjuri First Nation people of South Australia. Weaving for Sonya is more than just art, it is the important practice of cultural revival and maintenance. Weaving is a part of our culture and our story. Sonya will also share examples of other basket weaving techniques she has incorporated into her art practice to create contemporary pieces that blend the cultural tradition of weaving.
