The process of weaving has a deeply therapeutic effect and is used across many cultures to convey messages that honour family history and personal journeys. The act of deconstruction and reconstruction of an item that has emotional significance is a very powerful and empowering experience.

In this workshop Sky Carter will teach you traditional as well as innovative techniques to create a personal and meaningful woven work. Using your preloved materials, Sky will take you on a textural journey where you are shown how to weave items to honour them in a unique and beautiful way.

This workshop is perfect for those that have a sentimental or precious ‘stash’ of pieces that could be repurposed into a wall hanging such as; a wedding veil, grandfather’s tie or hankies, baby clothing or item from a significant event.

Sky will provide an array of materials that can be used to complement your items in the weaving process as well as her personally designed loom and tools made from sustainable bamboo. Students are asked to bring at least one meaningful item that they would like to celebrate in a wall hanging.

Sky Carter has exhibited both locally and internationally and is a member of the Seed Stitch Collective. She is a fibre and textile artist operating under her art practice ‘Sky Carter Colour’. With a design studies major in colour she is continually developing and evolving her skills through residencies, travel and further education and has developed her own range of sustainable weaving tools and looms which used to teach her unique weaving style.
