Our Story 

In our small, rural town of Cowaramup, a group of like-minded women came together to develop something new and inspiring for their community. They realised craft could be the key to connection within their community where women can support one another, whilst crafting, in a safe space.

 

Whilst this concept was born in 2016, where it began as an informal gathering at a small property in Curtis Street, it has developed and matured over time. As more people became interested in joining, the concept developed and Woven became a formal venture in early 2020 where it was incorporated as a non-profit organisation.

Our Home

While we work on acquiring our own premises, the Cowaramup District Social Club (CDSC) will be our main venue for Woven sessions. The club is hugely supportive of our initiative, and of the women of our town. We hope with our Woven events and energy we can help to grow this already amazing community hub!

According to club's regulations, if you attend more than 3 sessions at the club, you will need to become a member.

Thanks to the generous seed funding from the Lions Club of Cowaramup, the Woven initiative has been able to take flight.  We are extremely grateful for the presence of the Lions Club in our local community.  They are a significant contributor to many of Cowaramups attractions and make Cowaramup a town we are proud to be a part of. 

AMR Shire

The Augusta Margaret River Shire has generously gifted Woven significant funding for non-disposable resources and funds to help promote local artists and community connection.

Alice

Chairperson

I'm an amateur artist, but will give any medium a crack! Crafternoons light my fire, as do small town vibes and belly laughs with other women. Pretty sure these things are supposed to go together and I'm pretty sure I was born to be part of this movement.
