Get Your Weave On!

This is the technique that I teach in workshops. It's the easiest one I've learnt but they are all fun! I know about 4 different ways to make them. Huge thanks to Cerefino Sabatino from Erub Island (Danley Island) in the Torres Strait for teaching me this. We did a weaving exchange and both agreed this was the best one : ) It's also the one my mama learnt as a child growing up in Samoa. Enjoy!

Avant Post Cards sponsorship. Wooohooo!

I'm writing this late at night while my family is sound asleep. (This will probably be how I roll for the next few weeks until the installation in December). But I remember saying to some dear friends earlier today that we have to capture moments of peace and celebration when we can. So now's my moment and I'm taking it. A huge and exciting thing happened last week for the project. Avant Card agreed to fully sponsor a print run of 10,000 post cards to help promote the project and these gorgeous cards went in select stores across Australia last week (on my wedding anniversary to be exact. Amazing timing!!). They'll be on the shelves for a month, so have a look out for them, they're pretty lov
