Don’t despair as the days draw short – come celebrate the season with some warm, woolly weaving workshops!
I’m so pleased to be part of the East Gippsland Winter Festival program again this year, running TWO workshops at Iceworks in Lakes Entrance. Sticking with the winter-warming theme, I’ll be running another Iloomination workshop if you want to dress up your wall, and a Rustic Rug workshop if you want to warm up the hall(way). Or, personally I like a woolly rug beside the bed, to soften the shock of getting out of bed on chilly winter mornings. If you’re interested you can read all the details and book here.
There are so many events organised as part of the festival, but one that I’m particularly looking forward to is the Bruthen Medieval Winter Fire night on 2nd July.
Many years ago, for a costume party I made a dress based off one of the garments found in the Norse settlement of Herjolfsnes in Greenland (pattern from this book). Strangely I’ve not had many occasions to wear it since… So, this sounds like a great excuse to dust the dress off (probably literally!) and maaaaaaaybe I’ll see if I can neaten up the hems a little – that was the first garment I ever sewed myself and ahhh, it was a learning curve that’s for sure.
Does this sound like something you’d also enjoy? Maybe I’ll see you there!
