After gaining inspiration in the exhibition, join Elder Aunty Karleen Green as she offers insights into Aboriginal ways of viewing and interacting with the environment and how we can build healthier relationships with these majestic giants of the sea.
This workshop is open to all, from beginners to master weavers.
