Event description
Workshop: Weaving Stories: Make new fabric samples inspired by Caribbean textile traditions with Rose Sinclair

About this Event

The Caribbean islands are renowned for their woven baskets, they can be found all over the islands, they present us with a history of craft and making.

For many people that travel, cloth is the thing that they bring with them, but from the islands woven baskets tell of communal making and skills, with some being decorated with sewing stitches such as French knots and Satin Stitch.

During the workshop you will explore the theme of migration or cultural identity through weaving small pieces of cloth. Please bring to the workshop discarded clothing that can be cut up into strips.

Each person will create several woven samples. The finished fabric is envisaged to be on display at the Idea Store.

The workshop is suitable for Adults no previous textile skills are necessary.
