More connection.

This is more than a craft project. We are seeing star weavers transform their own lives and become more connected, engaged, courageous and committed to doing their part to create happier, violence free communities.

More joy. Less Overwhelm.

Star weaving is an Indigenous and Pacific Island craft activity that supports mindfullness & encourages new conversations. We feel more joy and hope when we share the responsibility of creating safe spaces for everyone.

Star Weave YOUR way.

We want to inspire communities to come together to create safety and dignity for everyone. Our STARter kits can help you get started and then we encourage you to continue gathering your own local materials, including recycled paper, fabric off cuts or plant foliage.  

It can be possible and meaningful.

  • Are you looking for creative ways to activate and sustain conversations about inclusion, joy, connection, mental health and safety for your communities?
  • Do you want to showcase your community’s stories and resilience through meaningful art?
If you answered yes, then you”re in the right place. Learn more about our global star weaving movement and how you can get involved.

Ending violence is EVERYONE'S responsibility.

3 Benefits of Star Weaving

Participating in the arts can boost mental wellbeing.
We love that star weaving can help us to participate in conversations of peace and ending violence, while boosting individual and collective mental health. Doing things that bring us pleasure and joy, like making art, can help us to tell stories about who we are and the things that matter most to us. Visit our resources section and read our article on 'Why star weaving is good for our mental health."

Star weaving brings people together.
We have active and passionate Star Weaving Communities across Australia, Ireland and the USA who are using this gentle traditional craft to bring diverse communities together. Ireland Project Leader, Siobhán McQuillan, says: “Before and during COVID19 I have been raising awareness of domestic violence and introducing the stars to Ireland by creating star weaving communities with vulnerable members of the community. You are not alone."

Star weaving can help educate and raise awareness.
One Billion Stars invites people around the world to weave stars as symbols of light, solidarity, and courage to end all forms of violence together. Star weaving is a gentle way to start difficult and uncomfortable conversations by focussing on building safe spaces for respectful relationships. One star at a time.
