The NSW AECG Inc. is now an approved provider for the Creative Kids vouchers. Students are given a $100 voucher to use from the state government to be creative. Because of this, we will be running weaving classes over Zoom.
During the weaving lessons, students will participate in a group discussion around Aboriginal culture and weaving and begin making their own woven objects step by step.
Participant fee: $100 (Students are encouraged to use their Creative Kids voucher for this program)
Lessons would be delivered over ZOOM in the format of 1 hour a week for 4 weeks.
