Women weavers

Amazing handicraft talent on display in Alotau

In recent times, these activities have also been aimed at preserving culture and transferring local knowledge from the older to younger generations.

One such event was the recent gathering of the Women Weavers of Milne Bay early this month.

This saw women from around the province gather in Alotau for a two-day show and tell event.

It was specifically for sharing knowledge on cultural practices, particularly the art of weaving.
