Story: Weaving
Artist: Holly Sanders

This work represents weaving, which is one of the oldest art forms in the world.
Weaving expresses our cultural identity and traditions that date back many
thousands of years. Our ancient art of weaving has been used to create food tools, baskets, fishing nets and skin cloaks for warmth. Ceremonial and traditional objects are made from plant materials gathered from the bush or string made from animal and human hair. The various grasses and leaves are stripped into ideal widths, then softened by soaking them in water or by drawing them through hot ashes. Plants, bulbs and leaves required for different weaving methods are collected at specific times of year. Our dilly bags, containers, floor mats and rope are expertly made, showing the skill that has been passed on by women for over a thousand generations.
