The art & craft of weaving your own stories & landscapes
Take the how-to of an age-old traditional technique & twist it to become an expression for your own stories, your creative voice & a new way towards mindfulness.
Or just learn how to weave a pretty wall hanging to show off on Instagram!
Loom weaving has this very wonderful juxtaposition - it can become almost like a meditation, where you’ll immerse yourself in the quiet of yarny-conversations, connecting with your internal creative whisper. Or otherwise it’s simply a super fun way to spend an afternoon, making patterns and pictures with beautiful naturally dyed yarns.
My weaving workshops are not about following someone else’s patterns or style, but about guiding you to create your own works, delve into your own personal artistic skills and make something that no one else has ever made before!
Two dates available:
Sunday 8th September, Atelier 34, Sunshine Coast.
Sunday 20th October, Willow Vale, Southern Highlands, NSW

Loom Weaving: Atelier 34, Sunshine Coast, QLD
My workshops are about so much more than simply learning a new skill, though you do that too. I’ve been teaching hands-on crafting and creative making for over 10 years (both online and in-person), and know how to make your class fun, informative, educational and inspiring.
You’ll learn the stitches to create a wall hanging, a cushion or tote bag or jewellery. You’ll be able to warp your loom and know the difference between double and single warp (and why you’d use one or the other), taking your weaving off the loom and everything in between.
I even share my natural dye tips with you, so you can go home to create your own colours for future weavings.
