Tasmanian Bush Craft

Ever tried your hands at Bush Craft? Come and try it out with Maya who will be providing a space to learn about weaving Flax Flowers and Everlasting Flax Crowns. You will be incorporating native flora with coloured fabrics to personalise your own creations.

“I am a young Tasmanian woman who grow up on a community block south of Hobart. I work in a variety of places, as an adventure guide on the Overland Track through the summer, and as a gardener during the winters. I've learned to reuse the garden waste as weaving materials and often spend my evening while guiding twisting grasses into string.

Growing up in the Tassie festival environments like the Circus Fest, Cygnet Folk Festival and the Good Spirit Aboriginal Festival on Bruny Island, I am now learning how to give back to these communities. I have worked as a craft teacher, a leader in outdoor environments and personally love to weave and create. Combining my love for all these things had resulted in the creation of this workshop.”
