About the Event
You have woven your cloth, now is the time to go the next step and learn how to make a pattern, cut and sew it into a garment.
Viv Crawford has run a number of workshops to help weavers get the most out of the process of making and creating items from their weaving. Join Viv for this one day workshop, where you will learn how to draft a pattern in the morning, then move to cut the cloth and begin sewing in the afternoon. Please click on "read more" as you will need this information in order to decide whether this workshop is for you.
You need to meet with Viv beforehand, to look at your finished fabric and discuss styles and appropriate use of the cloth you have produced. You will need a length of cloth which has been washed and ironed; and a windcheater that fits the way you want your finished piece to fit. For the workshop, you will also need to bring a sewing machine and accoutrements.
Viv will organise this meeting with you once you have fully enrolled in the workshop.
Places are limited to 6 participants. The Guild reserves the right to cancel or reschedule this program if enrolments are less than 6.
The workshop space will be open 15 minutes beforehand only as the area needs to be set up that morning for this workshop. Tea and coffee will be provided. Please bring your name badge, pen, pencil and notebook, something to share for morning tea plus your own lunch. A refrigerator is available for lunch contents that need refrigeration.
It is important that you bring your requirements for comfort and health. (e.g. reading glasses)
