woven Bats

These cute little people are my first attempts at weaving Bats, a series of designs that I have been working on and perfecting since 2020.


Because of the challenging shape of Bat wings, I have used the very cooperative raffia fibre to make them. Eventually, I plan to weave Bats from native fibres like Lomandra, Kurrajong and Stringybark. More recent Bats have gumnut eyes!

By using different coloured fibres, I can create distinctly different species of Flying Fox Bats in my weaving. At the moment, these include the Grey Headed, Little Red, and Black Flying Foxes. I am currently working on a Spectacled Flying Fox and insectivorous Microbat designs.


I truly love my little woven Bats, each one turns out a little different - just like real life Bats!


With great love, gratitude, admiration and respect, I acknowledge my weaving teacher Ngiyaampaa-Wongaibon woman and master weaver Aunty Daniella Chedzey-King, whose patient mentoring and guidance helped create these woven Bat people.
