Aboriginal Basket Weaving

Boandik artists Sonya, Sarah & Suzy Smith shared their culture with us over relaxed, informative conversations. Weaving is part of aboriginal cultural traditions passed down from ancestors, and still practiced today. It was a pleasure to learn some of these traditional aboriginal weaving techniques and some lovely woven articles were created.
