under the trees...

^Sustainable weaving workshop. North Sydney. Feb 2014^

What a weekend.
What a workshop.
On a beautiful sunny Saturday morning, underneath a canopy of trees, I was asked to teach a sustainable weaving workshop to 18 lovely people at North Sydney. It was an event organised by the amazing team at North Sydney Community centre - who run a brilliant calendar of art and craft events throughout the year. 

So it was no surprise that this workshop was oversubscribed with interested locals, who were all keen to get creative on a sunny summer morning. There is an insatiable interest in the arts at the moment - which is so great to see and be a part of. But when you only have two hours to learn a new skill you can get a little overwhelmed - especially when you're surrounded by much colour and filled with so much new information!

But as you can see from these lovely photos from the day, it really was a great morning, and a brilliant way of connecting and creating with a whole lot of new people.

Thank you again to Joanna and everyone at the community centre for running such a fun event. And I also have to say a massive thank you Sal, who took these photos for me as I was running around like a headless chook for the whole class! You were a great 2ic!
