Indigenous Weaving

Today we worked with Miss A as we continue to learn about Indigenous people in Australia.
As a part of our activities we did some weaving with plants that are local to the area we live in, which is the same land of the Kaurna people. We looked at the plants Aborignals use for weaving and other ways that these plants can be used. When Aborignals do weaving it can be to create many different objects they need for their daily lives, e.g. baskets to carry food, to carry tools, to carry grasses to do more weaving with.

We used some weaving frames to start going over and under with the grasses that we picked from our school gardens. As you can see in the pictures, we did lots of weaving and could really see our progress. We look forward to seeing them on display in the front office area.
