Join us at WA Museum as we celebrate NAIDOC Week 2023. This year's theme is For Our Elders.

Do you have an Elder, role model, family member or friend you look up to? Would you like to create something to give them to show your appreciation?

Then come along and join Sharyn Egan, prominent Whadjuk Nyoongar artist, sculptor and weaver from Perth in one of these wonderful weaving workshops.

During these workshops participants will:

  • Learn about NAIDOC Week and what it means.
  • Learn how to weave through binding and wrapping techniques through a hands-on experience.
  • Learn about Nyoongar culture and the significance of animal totems and the importance of looking after each totem.
  • Create a special animal to keep, or give to someone special.

Please note that this is not a drop & leave activity. Carers are required to accompany children taking part and enjoy the experience themselves!
