This is a very calm and gentle workshop using the materials that we can find around our daily life. "Weave your own Art Work"
NZ textile designer, Anna-Rose Carpenter will come down from Northland to Auckland to teach us how to weave and make a wall-hanging tapestry. She will also show us few alternative ways to finish the products, sharing her deep knowledge about weaving.
Each attendant makes their own woven artwork in a picture frame. They will use a range of up-cycled and hand spun yarns from her yarn library.
Anna-Rose will teach them a number of techniques including plain weave and tufting. We will use the frames with the holes pre-drilled that she prepares and everyone will learn how to ‘warp up’ their own looms with white warp yarn (as pictured).
She will bring a range of physical and pictorial examples of end products to
• A small group tutorial and hands on experiences.
• All materials will be supplied by the tutor. If you want to bring some additional materials that you want to weave with, Please bring them in!
