Stars in our eyes
We has stars in our eyes, for the ladies of the Pacific Women's Weaving Circle. Adam and I partook in a workshop at Alpha 60 on Saturday. We have both done a little weaving for various projects, so I surprised him with a workshop.
I loved the work that was installed instore as part of Mis-design, and also just seeing a mat covered in shiny ribbons surrounded by people weaving. No ornate lolly capes for us (OMG, lolly capes!) but we did learn how to make a star and a fish, and of the importance of handmade gifts and exchange in pacific culture. My favourite thing was Maryann's amazing necklace, but I was too shy to ask for a picture. Amazing.
There are some more workshops coming up at Harvest workroom too, so keep your eyes out.
