Weave with us!
Numbulwar Numburindi Arts wants to teach you how to weave too. Your weaving kit contains everything you need to get started:
Guided video and illustrated step-by-step instructions
Enough raffia to make a small basket
You will be guided through the process of weaving by expert educator Rose Wilfred and her aunties, Nicole and May Wilfred. Proceeds from the sale of each weaving kit support intergenerational learning and the next generation of weavers at Numbulwar Numburindi Arts.
Numbulwar Numburindi Arts
BUILT ON SELF-DETERMINATION, NUMBULWAR NUMBURINDI ARTS (NNA) IS A COLLECTIVE OF ARTISTS WHOSE MISSION IS TO KEEP CULTURE STRONG.
Established in 2019, Numbulwar’s first art centre is 100 per cent owned and controlled by the community. Born from the community’s desire to practice and engage with traditional culture, NNA is a space for artistic and cultural expression.
Champions of fibre art, NNA artists marry naturally-dyed and locally-harvested pandanus with bright and bold ghost nets, abandoned fishing line retrieved from Numbulwar’s shoreline. Our Wulbung (baskets) and Yir (dillybags) fit as naturally in traditional applications as they do in contemporary, urban environments.
Numbulwar sits on the Rose River and belongs to the Nunggayinbala clan, one of the Wubuy or Nunggubuyu speaking clans from the region. Ceremonial activities are still very important within the region and occur regularly.
