Weaving Workshop

About

Our intention is to activate a collective practice using natural fibres to keep our culture alive.
Freda MasintaJitta Artist

As descendants of the Rainforest Aboriginal Bama (people) of Tropical North Queensland, the Jitta Art family would like to share their knowledge and history of weaving with you.

Experience how hand skills are mastered in cutting, bending, folding, knotting, splicing, splitting, stripping and weaving. It is soothing and therapeutic.

Jitta Art works closely with Elders of the Rainforest Aboriginal Bama to help preserve the knowledge of the fibre and to be actively involved with the continued restoration, education and awareness of Traditional Rainforest Aboriginal Culture.

Discover how these ancient skills carry a strong connection to culture for Rainforest Aboriginal people. Weave your own pandan bracelet as a souvenir of your cultural experience.

Enjoy morning tea whilst learning about the challenges teaching the next generation these traditional skills.

This hands on cultural experience will give you an appreciation of the traditional crafts and practices of Rainforest Aboriginal culture.
