Fiber Dyeing Workshop with Lucy Wanapuyngu and Louise Hamby

Join us for this dyeing workshop with Lucy Malirrimurruwuy Wanapuyngu, master weaver and artist from Gapuwiyak, and Louise Hamby, anthropologist and collector. The workshop will involve dyeing pandanus fiber from northern Australia with blossoms, berries and nuts from the community, for use in woven objects such as baskets, dilly bags and mats.

Watch this video about pandanus dyeing in a different community in Arnhem Land, to get a sense of the process.
