All of us at BARE Weaving would like to show our profound respect and love for all indigenous communities around the world. We acknowledge that indigenous wisdom is a global knowledge bank held by humans from all races and countries. Basket weaving skills are the original survival skills which all humans once used in order to live in harmony with the earth. BARE Weaving programs help to share these skills and keep them alive in the modern day.
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land, of our ancestors and elders – past and present, on which our programs take place. With a special recognition to the elders past and present from the Gumbanyggirr people of the North Coast of NSW, and our adopted Yolngu families of North-East Arnhem Land.
We have been deeply inspired on our weaving journey’s by weaving styles from all over the world and most importantly by the land that supports us.
