Workshop 1: Weave your own plaid design
Date: Sunday 28th June, 1:30pm to 3pm (NZST) via ZOOM
Make a homemade loom and learn to weave your very own three way plaid design!
This fun introduction to weaving does not require you to have any weaving equipment or experience. The workshop is for anyone interested in weaving and takes place from the convenience of your computer.
Simple instructions to make and assemble your cardboard loom will be supplied once booked.
3 different coloured 8ply, wool or cotton yarn
Wool needles that fit your yarn (alternatively bamboo skewers)
Fork or comb
Coloured pencils or pens (that relate to your yarn colours)
Paper (graph paper if you have some)
$5 of the workshop price will be donated to Connect the Dots, a non-profit organisation delivering arts programmes and art packs to the older community in care homes.
Can be made 5 working days before the workshop, a $7.50 admin fee will be charged. Alternatively if you prefer you can assign your place to someone you know if you give me 5 working days notice so there is time to email them the loom instructions and materials list.
To join the waitlist please email Kathryn at firstname.lastname@example.org
