Two Christchurch weaving classes

I will be up in Christchurch to take two beginner weaving classes one at the end of April and one mid May.  These will be small classes but anyone interested please email me on for details.  You will learn all the basics on a small piece so that you can scale up to a family cloak later.  Places limited.

April Saturday weaving

A small group today but interesting work.  Helen has used some variegated silky thread which made for a different idea for the rows. I'd like to investigate the possibilities of varigated thread.
It could be fun

Judy carries on with her perfect mawhitiwhiti

Elaine finished her little piece and is now thinking about what to make next.   Some people have wool or patchwork stashes. Elaine has feathers. So now she wants to use up some of her stash

And I have finally turned the corner on my black and white elbow length Arapaki or shoulder cape. The feathers are barred plymouth rock chook feathers. I enjoyed doing the taaniko even though it was two rows for each 'row'.
