Description

Join Muhubo in this colourful workshop, sharing her passion for her Somali craftwork!


Choose your own colours and have loads of fun weaving your basket to life using sticks and wools!


"My name is Muhubo Suleiman, I am from a small country town near Galkayo. I am arrived in Australia in 2003 in hope I could continue my passion of craft making. As a single mother of three I had to push aside my dreams and raise my three kids. As my youngest is now 9, I now have the time and opportunity to pursue my dreams in craft making. I specialize in handmade traditional rugs, bags and wall decorations. I also do henna painting for special occasions. This allows me to showcase my traditional Somali craft to a wider audience while at the some time preserving my cultural heritage."
