Term 3, 2024 - Textile Art

Bookings open Tuesday 7pm (25 June)

Textile Art…

     …with wool, beads, fabric, dye, thread and felt.

For example: make a soft wool animal, or a bag with your own unique design painted or sewn on.

These classes explore cutting, dying and hand sewing of fabric. We will also have a go at some ancient and modern wool crafts. 

All of these skills naturally develop all students’ spatial awareness, fine-motor skills and creativity.
