Evelyn Miburo is a powerful human. To survive while living in an African refugee camp, Evelyn wove traditional Burundian baskets out of grass to make a little extra money to support her family.

Now living in Australia, Evelyn uses colourful strands from rice bags and continues to make her baskets. Traditionally these baskets were used for everything from wrapping a birthday present, storing food, or as decoration. Evelyn even weaves the names of her children, family or friends in to the baskets if its a birthday or special celebration,

Evelyn is the family and force behind Melbourne’s favourite rappers – the FLYBZ 

Join us at Little Woods to celebrate Evelyn Miburo and her plethora of skills.
