Christine designs and weaves with the natural hues of New Zealand wool for contemporary interiors in her Lyall Bay studio. . She is interested in exploring surface and form to articulate themes of belonging and our connection to the natural world.

Christine has been weaving and tutoring since graduating with a BDes (Textiles) from Massey University’s College of Creative Arts in 2014.

Class Description

In this one-day workshop you will be guided to weave your own piece of cloth on a vintage 4 shaft table loom. After learning essential skills for weaving with wool you will compose a personalised piece of cloth from a selection of weave structures and a palette of New Zealand wool yarns, including yarn dyed with plant extracts. During refreshment breaks we will have conversations about how looms work to create a variety of other weave structures commonly seen in woven cloth. You will leave with a finished wall hanging, or cloth to take home to construct a table runner, zipper purse or cushion cover. 

Requirements:

  • Double vaccination (I need to demonstrate and share equipment at close range!)
  • Mask

What materials will be needed?

  • All yarns supplied but participants can bring their own yarns to incorporate into their work (‘double knit’ weight yarns work best, small amounts go a long way)
  • Wear comfortable clothes
  • Bring a packed lunch and water bottle
