Sunday 8th - Tactile Textiles hosted by the CWA
10am - 2pm
Have fun with your yarns, fabrics - create something practical from all those scraps using various colours, techniques and textures. Let's utilise all those little tiddly bits of fabric, and tiny bits of yarn and give them a new life and cover or create a new item to wear or use. Thrifty ideas but for today - well maybe some nanna stuff mixed in there as well.
This workshop would be suited for those with some experience in sewing, knit/crochet or crafting. Bring some bits and bobs to use plus old clothes to revamp or cut up, and of course scissors, pins etc.
Hosted by the Castlemaine CWA .... and blokes can come too!
$3 per head, includes tea and coffee
BYO lunch - and if someone has a cake or two to share around for morning and/or afternoon tea, that would be great.
