Kathit Ngkaarli – Grass Weaving

This painting is called “Kathit Ngkaarli” which means “grass weaving” in the Kalkadoon language.

For thousands of years Kalkadoon women have gathered the many different grasses, barks, plant materials and even hair to weave a vast variety of traditional items. The weaving would take a great deal of time with the woman collecting the materials and then drying them out and sometimes colouring the grasses by boiling them with ochres, tree roots and different barks to give the strands a different colour and look.

My painting represents my people’s connection with the lands and this ancient technique that has been passed down from generation to generation.
