Hello our brothers and sisters.
Welcome to Yarn Bark. A place to connect deeply to First Nations History and Ways of Being.
We care to heal First Nations People and Communities and with that is the healing of relationships with non-Indigenous Australia.

To support First Nations People and Communities on their journey of healing and reconnecting to their cultural foundations and pathways, whilst providing transformational experiences that support the growth of cultural intelligence of all Australian people.
Facilitating Connections to the Heartbeat of First Nations Culture and Ways of Being
We are committed to providing opportunities for all people to connect deeply to Australia's First Nations Peoples and Culture in the most authentic way possible. We see this as an opportunity to heal and forge new relationships between Indigenous and non-indigenous people and communities.
We offer a range of workshops and experiences tailored to suit education and corporate settings.Mainstream Offerings
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, behaviors and perceptions and relinquishing First Nations Peoples from entrenched intergenerational trauma and sadness and reinstating purpose and belonging.
We have developed a range of workshops, programs and initiatives particularly for First Nations Young People.First Nations Offerings
Traditional Craft and Artefact Making
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.
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.Artefacts and Craft
