Learn to weave braid with Christine Brimer - Saturday 27 August 10 - 4pm
70.00 - 90.00
Learning to weave is a long process. Tape/braid weaving is a more immediate and affordable than loom weaving.
In this 6 hour class you will begin with a cuppa and a quick look at some different ways woven cloth can be made. You will then learn one way of weaving a braid, using your body as a loom and some affordable tools. We will use “waste” and found yarns to create a beautiful, reusable woven braid. You should have time to begin a second braid if you wish to purchase equipment to continue braid weaving at home.
Please bring with you on the day: - Lunch and a water bottle - Mask - $35 cash if you wish to purchase equipment from tutor to continue braid weaving at home - Small pair of sharp scissors - A small cushion or hand towel (for comfort when tying back strap around your body) - Pair of old tights/stockings
I am a textile designer interested in exploring and interpreting the interplay of people, land and the natural world through loom and off-loom weaving and other textile processes. My goals are to contribute to the strengthening of New Zealand’s wool industry by designing and weaving contemporary wool textiles for residential and commercial interiors, to offer tailored weave experiences and advanced tuition, and to continue to learn, collaborate, develop and apply my knowledge and skills.
We encourage artistic expression across a wide variety of arts and crafts.
