I feel very honoured to have been invited to contribute to a new venture here in the Nelson Region. Called ‘NZ Textile Experiences’, it’s a group of local artists and designers who….
“invite local residents and visitors to the region to take time out and indulge in one or more of our hands-on fibre craft or art textile workshop experiences.”
There are so many experiences to choose from over the next few months including Screen Printing, Wild Basket making, Eco Dyeing, Felt-making, Fabric & Fibre dyeing, Digital Textile Design, Paper making, Contemporary Stitch and Weaving.
I’ll be hosting a couple of one day workshops in October called ‘Small Loom Weaving’. We will be using luxury New Zealand fibres and local colour inspiration to make some lovely hand-woven decorative pieces.
Please head over to the NZ Textile Experiences website to find out more about all the unique and exciting workshops available and to book a place.
I’d like to say a BIG thank you to Colleen for putting together this wonderful new project.
