A Day of Weaving Flow: Balmain - Sydney Craft Week
This workshop is time and space for you; to create.
Join me on this creative journey, where the art of weaving and the practice of deep listening converge, creating a sacred space for self-reflection, connection, and inner peace.
In this immersive workshop, embark on a transformative journey that combines the art of weaving with the power of your intuition and your ancestral remembering’s. You'll unlock new dimension of awareness, attuning yourself to the subtle nuances and hidden messages that surround us.
We'll begin with the magical Bungalow Palm inflorescences. I'll walk you through the foraging and harvesting of the material and then how to prepare it for weaving. Through the rhythmic motion of your hands, you will create a beautiful sculptural form as you forge a deep connection with the world around you. Following a delicious organics lunch on the grass at Clontarf Cottage, we'll explore foraged grasses and basketry techniques. Again you will create sculptural forms with deep knowledge how how to forage and prepare to continue you on your journey.
All materials will be supplied, just bring you and your open heart.
Here's what people are saying:-
"Fantastic experience. I loved the chance to work with my hands and it reminds me I need to do it more often!!"
"What I loved was the inspiration of what we feel, not what we think we should be doing."
"I'm walking away with more self admiration, more belief in my self; a new skill, relaxation and meeting new humans.
"I loved connecting with the palm and to my hands and becoming more confident in its handling as I went along."
"Sarah, I loved your enthusiasm and love for what you do and your knowledge of your art. I loved the silence while we created as everyone was deeply connecing in."
I'd love to work with you,
Big love, Sarah
