Sky Carter is a Sydney based fibre artist and colour designer.
Come and join Sky in a three hour 'weave a wallhanging' weaving experience where you will work towards making your very own woven wall hanging. Using an array of materials including Skein Sisters beautiful yarns, Sky will teach you weaving techniques that can be used to create a variety of looks. Not only do you get to use some beautiful yarns but you will weave on Sky's 'own designed' bamboo weaving loom and weaving tools. The loom is yours to use and take home with you on the day. This workshop is an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of weaving as well as indulge in some creative expression and colour play.
Cost: $150 (includes the loom - yours to take home - plus tools and yarn to weave with) You're also entitled to a 10% discount on purchases in store on the day.
