At SNU, we acknowledge the spirits and ancestors of the lands and waters where we live, work and weave. We acknowledge and give thanks to the Quandamooka, Turrbal and Yuggera Peoples, the traditional owners and custodians of the country also known as the Redlands and Brisbane.
Join me, Maryann Talia Pau, star weaver and founder of the One Million Stars to End Violence project, for an online tutorial to learn the star weave! This beloved 8 pointed star is used by star weavers around the world, creating symbols of courage, light and solidarity to end all forms of violence for the One Million Stars to End Violence movement.

I'm trying something new and taking these workshops online. It's not the same as weaving in person and groups, but with COVID19 around and the need for us to #lockdownforlove & #stayhomestaysafe, why not give it crack? Plus I've always wanted to try this!
