    It's great that the workshop was on lokalocal or we wouldn't have known about the Indigenous Arts Festival. The whole experience was very interesting and a great day out. The workshop itself was good. We got a free woven headpiece on arrival (very cute). There were a few localokal members on hand (at least 2 at all times) and one of them joined in. The advert was misleading though - it said 'take away a box or a a mat' if I wasn't mistaken. And weaving is hard! That should be more clear. We tried to make a box (too difficult) and ended up making cute bookmarks. A bit more foresight from the organisers (and lovely lady who taught us how to make them) would have been useful. She's clearly an expert but went through each step very fast. I think a bookmark, and then maybe something more complicated like the headband, would have been best. There were also not quite enough materials given (if we had made the boxes, we would have run out!). Emily & Eunice
