WEAVE A STAR
New to the project?
Want to keep star weaving?
The One Million Stars installation may be done, but communities and individuals around the world continue to weave stars because they help us to feel like we belong, that we have a shared purpose and they inspire us to do more.
NEW: Thank you to everyone who wove stars for the Gold Coast Mosque Christchurch Memorial installation Sunday 15 March.,
Happy Star weaving! For public health and safety, we have postponed the installation. We will share details on our social media and here for news.

Weave stars out of paper, old magazines, tear/florist ribbon, natural fibres etc.

Many cultures weave this beautiful 8 pointed star. When I worked out how to weave the star through trial and error, I realised it is only a few more folds from weaving a fish, which I learnt growing up in Auckland. The technique I now teach in my workshops, comes from a few awesome people, including Master weaver Nino and my Mama. I met Nino (Mr Sabatino) at Selling Yarns in 2009, an Indigenous weaving conference in Canberra. Nino is from Waiben (Thursday) Island in the Torres Strait. We did a star weaving exchange and both agreed that his way was super cool, and easier than my way! This is also the technique my mama used to make stars, when growing up in Samoa.
