Join star weavers in Austin, Texas. See a list of star weaving workshops below and weave a star in Texas today!
Our Star weaving community is growing human centred connections. As we weave our way towards One Billion Stars, we also marvel at the stories of those who join our movement to weave stars for safety and dignity for everyone.
Star Weavers in Austin, Texas are weaving together people and stories and it’s incredible to see.
Melissa and her team of keen volunteers are bringing people together online and now in person, to weave stars as symbols of light, courage and solidarity to end all forms of violence.
Recently, Melissa and I caught up with Mike Lee for an interview on KUT Arts Eclectic.
Listen to our radio interview with KUT Arts Eclectic:
‘The gift of this project’: One Million Stars Texas is part of a global crafting movement against violence:
It was really special to share space with Melissa and chat about what the stars mean to us and how Austin communities can get involved.
Melissa has some more star weaving workshops lined up over the next weeks in Austin. You must check out their incredible Holiday Tree at Austin Public Library and their community star installation at Ten Thousand Villages Austin. Both star installations are on display through the end of the year. Visit onemillionstarstexas.net for more info and upcoming star weaving workshops.
Happy Star weaving Austin and Texas communities!
