Supporting First Nations People and Communities to Heal
Yarn Bark Exists to support First Nations Communities and Young People to heal and realize their inherited strength, knowledge and capacity to live holistically healthy lives through connection to culture, community and country.
We work to build resilience to external societal pressures, behaviours and perceptions and relinquishing First Nations Peoples from entrenched intergenerational trauma and sadness. Reinstating purpose and belonging.
We have developed a range of workshops, programs and initiatives specifically for First Nations Young People & Community.First Nations Offerings
Traditional Craft Workshops & Sales
We are committed to keeping alive the ancient practice of traditional craft and artefact making. We challenge the mass production of fake artefacts that are made in factories and sold as “authentic Australian souvenirs”.
Through our work we share the end to end process of artefact creation. A practice that enables connection to self, others and the land whilst facilitating an opportunity for emotional, spiritual, physical, cultural and creative expression.
Our popular Traditional Craft Workshops are highly interactive and are perfect for secondary schools, organisations and community groups.
At Yarn Bark we craft and sell our artefacts and instruments direct to buyers and advertise the work of other grassroots First Nations craftsman across the county.Craft Workshops & Artefact Sales
