Ages: 10 years +

Weaving has been used for thousands of years as a means of coming together and healing. It is a powerful meditative tool that can help us stay grounded and connected.

In this hands-on workshop, Tegan Murdock, founder of Ngumpie Weaving, shares her passion and culture through this traditional, ongoing practice.

Join Tegan as she teaches you weaving techniques passed down through her family for generations, and connect with the ancestral knowledge that resides within this significant cultural practice.

These workshops are open to beginners, intermediate and master weavers aged 10 years and over. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

I want my weaving circles to help break down barriers between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. I hope I can help educate and contribute to a more peaceful world where our children can all walk as one, hand in hand, no matter their skin colour or cultural identity.

Tegan Murdock is a proud member of the Barkindtji / Maurara tribes originating from Coomealla, Lake Victoria and the Mungo regions from her mother’s ancestors. While also belonging to the Yorta Yorta and Dhudaroah tribes originating from the Shepparton area of her father’s ancestors.

She was born and raised in the small country town of Coomealla (25kms north west of Mildura on the NSW and Victorian border of Australia) on the Namatjira Mission.
