Mindi is a traditional grass basket used to carry message sticks. In this 3-hour weaving workshop Ninney will introduce participants to traditional weaving ideas and techniques unique to the Far North Queensland area. Participants will create their own Mindi from plastic-coated wire.
Ninney Murray is an expert senior weaver of traditional basket forms including the Jawun, Burrajingal, Gundala, Mindi and Wungarr. Taught by her Aunt, Ninney continues to pass on her weaving skills and traditional knowledge.
