I’ve gone a bit over the top obsessed with weaving at the moment, after resisting the urge for years. When I learnt to spin, at the Sutherland Shire Spinners and Weavers, other members tried to entice me to the weave side but I was all naaaaah man, I’ll stick with my knitting. Then my friend Georgia wove me a tiny hanging a year or so ago, and I stared at it for long enough that I decided it was time. So I strung up the above loom and haven’t looked back since. ps. weaving in the park makes me feel kind of like this meme.
I’ve started teaching a regular knitting class through a new company called Classie! It’s been a really amazing experience to be able to bring the joy of knitting to so many people! I just love showing people how to knit and working with people, and watching as their brains and muscles learn to work together in new ways in order to create fabric by specially looping together sticks and yarn! I’m so proud of everyone and am also proud to boast a 100% success rate! Everyone has learnt to knit so well!
They are booking out fast, and you can book here. We meet at My Sweet Memory, which is a Korean desert cafe on Bathurst St, near Town Hall(Sydney). Classes are chilled and supportive and everyone works at their own rate.
You can also Learn Crochet, go on Op Shop tours, and learn how to make movies through Classie. They hold classes in Sydney and Melbourne.
