Rene Bahloo of “Weavery” hosts basket weaving circles, workshops and retreats on the Sunshine Coast and surrounds (and occasionally interstate).
René is the empress of Weavery. She is a weaver, a teacher, a learner, and an artist. She weaves with the fibre of flow and meaning, spiraling ever outwards in order to manifest beauty and joyful wellbeing, like a spider spins her masterpiece.
She invites others to gather in community, teaching cultural skills and sharing the active meditation of basket weaving, in a nurturing and supportive environment. René’s passions stem from her life-altering experience of Australian Indigenous culture in Arnhem Land, Australia. She loves and lives women’s business, environmental connectedness, creative perspectives, the weaving of conscious, joyful communities and the magical journey of life. Her goal is for us all to weave our world into a better place, to weave ourselves in healing and wellbeing, to weave our environment with passion and purpose.
She also hosts weaving and cultural expeditions in partnership with weavers in Indigenous communities in Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, Australia; Papua New Guinea and also Bushmen communities of Southern Africa.
