Lunchtime Workshop: Spinners and Weavers | DESIGN Canberra 2020

In this 1-hour lunchtime workshop, participants will learn how to weave and will create a small weaving to keep or to gift to someone they care about. The workshop will begin with a tutorial on how to begin a weaving while outlining different styles and techniques that could be used to make each weaving individual. Once everyone is weaving and underway, the instructors will invite participants to engage in a discussion about weaving and its relationships to acts of care in many different forms.

All materials will be provided on the day including a pre-warped take home frame loom and a handout with the different weaving techniques outlined through the workshop.
