Raewyn has been weaving for 12 years and in that time has woven with a variety of medium including flax, pingao, kiekie, pandanus, dragon tree, cabbage tree and paper to make things that are beautiful as well as practical. She loves sharing the concept of weaving with visitors to her studio and also speaks at garden groups, women’s groups or craft groups. At present the woven sculptural bodices are her favourite things to make.
