Weaving Kit

$59.95

Numbulwar Numburindi Arts wants to teach you how to weave too. Your weaving kit contains everything you need to get started

Included in the box:

- Guided video and illustrated step-by-step instruction

- Needle

- Enough raffia to make a small basket

You will be guided through the process of weaving by expert educator Rose Wilfred and her aunties, Nicole and May Wilfred. Proceeds from the sale of each weaving kit support intergenerational learning and the next generation of weavers at Numbulwar Numburindi Arts.

BUILT ON SELF-DETERMINATION, NUMBULWAR NUMBURINDI ARTS (NNA) IS A COLLECTIVE OF ARTISTS WHOSE MISSION IS TO KEEP CULTURE STRONG.

Established in 2019, Numbulwar’s first art centre is 100 per cent owned and controlled by the community. Born from the community’s desire to practice and engage with traditional culture, NNA is a space for artistic and cultural expression.

Champions of fibre art, NNA artists marry naturally-dyed and locally-harvested pandanus with bright and bold ghost nets, abandoned fishing line retrieved from Numbulwar’s shoreline. Our Wulbung (baskets) and Yir (dillybags) fit as naturally in traditional applications as they do in contemporary, urban environments.

Numbulwar sits on the Rose River and belongs to the Nunggayinbala clan, one of the Wubuy or Nunggubuyu speaking clans from the region. Ceremonial activities are still very important within the region and occur regularly.

These weaving kits have been purchased directly from Numbulwar with money from each purchase going back to the community directly. 

Delays

Couriers and logistic companies are under the pump and still facing delays. The recent floods along the east coast of Australia not only put stress on the communities and families involved, but logistic companies as well. We cannot guarantee delivery times or estimates. Please keep in mind that the shipping time frames shown at the checkout should be taken with a pinch of salt{bush} + another pinch of patience! Please check the Australia Post website for further delays on delivery time frames - but again, take it with a grain of salt{bush}. 

Why? It's a combination of the highest volume of packages ever being sent, staff having to isolate, covid cases shutting warehouses, lockdowns and non-contact procedures. 
The good news? We're absolutely still processing orders within normal time frames our end and we are always here to help with any issues or questions you may have :)

Weaving at last

This is a beautiful product made so particularly by the excellent video where the ladies demonstrate step-by-step the process. The video is lovely and sets the pace and atmosphere required for this wonderful, ancient craft. I'm so grateful, thank you so much.
