Skill sharing is part of what I love to do as an artisan, and I enjoy teaching a broad range of textile skills. I have consistently found that skill-seekers bring their own knowledge to any workshop and I come away from the experience richer for it.
In the time of pandemic, I’ve been lucky enough to connect with interesting people from all over via virtual workshops with my fellow makers at Works-in-Progress.
We’ve connected at the neighbourhood level via a palimpsest of personal connections and experiences and at the international level via The Textile Museum of Canada and their Online Sustainable Textile Teach-Ins. Take a look at our website for a wealth of fun collaborative learning: Do-It-Together instead of Do-It-Yourself 😉
When we were still learning within eachother’s six foot radius, one of my favourite kind of workshops looked like this:
It will be a while before I run those kind of workshops again, but when the days get shorter over winter, I will be offering regular Zoom hands-on classes. Stay tuned!
