More information about our Introduction to Pandanus Stripping and Weaving Workshop

  • Duration: 3 hrs
  • Starts: 10.30 am (sharp)
  • Finishes: 1.30 pm
  • Songlines closes at 3 pm
  • Cost: $129 per person + booking fee

We start by learning the technique for stripping fresh (prickly) Pandanus fronds.  We cannot guarantee we will have fresh Pandanus but will do our best.

We provide pre-prepared fibre so the weaving can start. Everything is hands-on. We will also explain basic coiling techniques, handling dry Pandanus and the amazing colour palettes that are created from locally sourced natural dyes.

Songlines is open from 10 am (workshop starts 10.30 am sharp) and you are welcome to come in before the workshop for a complimentary tea/coffee and chat.
