Weave Your Love

Home > Sydney > Art and Craft Centres | Courses | Girls' Day Out
Event:
The process of weaving has a deeply therapeutic effect and is used across many cultures to convey messages that honour family history and personal journeys. The act of deconstruction and reconstruction of an item that has emotional significance is a very powerful and empowering experience.

In this workshop Sky Carter will teach you traditional as well as innovative techniques to create a personal and meaningful woven work. Using your preloved materials, Sky will take you on a textural journey where you are shown how to weave items to honour them in a unique and beautiful way.

This workshop is perfect for those that have a sentimental or precious ‘stash’ of pieces that could be repurposed into a wall hanging such as; a wedding veil, grandfather’s tie or hankies, baby clothing or item from a significant event.

Sky will provide an array of materials that can be used to complement your items in the weaving process as well as her personally designed loom and tools made from sustainable bamboo. Students are asked to bring at least one meaningful item that they would like to celebrate in a wall hanging.
