I love the weaving sessions at The pop up.
They may have started as a way of teaching and sharing my love of colour and weaving. But now this series of workshops has morphed into something more. We are now a colourful collective of friends who come together to have some creative fun.
And a chat!
Yesterday was my second workshop at The Pop Up space in Crows Nest.
And even though it was held on a truly beautiful Spring Sunday, we still had a full table of familiar faces - and a few newbies - who were eager to learn, but more importantly, share.
And what Ive discovered is that everyone has a unique style of weaving.
It intuitively flows from their hands.
I may teach the same simple techniques to everyone.
But in an instant, they all discover they have their own innate way of creating.
And that is what I love.
I hope you enjoy these images from our colourful day at the weaving table sessions...

Yesterday she discovered the comforts of weaving and reclining in my old armchair!
On the wall you can see a beautiful neckpiece by Olenka, that she made for me in some
of my fav colours. Thank you lovely lady!

I love playing at The Pop Up.
It feels like home, especially when surrounded by friendly people +
a few of my artworks on the wall.
Oh - and the addition of the paper pom pom installation
on the ceiling!
