Pandanus coiled basket (in progress) by Tania Bishop I have just spent the past 3 days at Ceres, (in Brunswick Melbourne) participating in a weaving workshop, given by a beautiful group of women from Mapuru, which is in East Arnhem Land. I worked on a coiled pandanus basket, under the guidance of Margaret, who is a master weaver and elder of the community. I’ll post a few more photos of my basket and share stories of the workshop.

Happy New Year from Melbourne, Australia. I stumbled upon this wonderful graffiti street mural I recently in my neighborhood. It was a delight to find! I’m sharing it again as it is moments like this I hope to have more of during the year. I wish all my followers lots of creative discoveries and adventures too over the next year and beyond :-)
