Create a Weaving with Plant Dyed Fabrics

with Melissa from Woven Threads NZ
Saturday 11th December 2021 10:00am - 12:00pm
Where  Remaker, 27 Spring Street, Tauranga View Map

In this 2 hour workshop, you will create a unique weaving (measuring approx 20cm x 17cm) using rescued fibre dyed with plants. All the botanical product used to colour the fibre has been sourced from Melissa's own backyard and very mindfully treated to extract hues from Mother Nature.

Melissa will have mini hand looms warped for you, and will coach you on a basic weaving method, as well as a tassle technique. You’ll have a table full of a beautiful selection of botanically dyed colours to choose from.

Once completed, learn how to cut the weaving from the loom and be shown how to tie it off, ready to take home and adorn a table or sideboard for a natural, botanical themed piece of interior decor.

No experience necessary. All materials will be provided. Please remember to bring and wear your mask for this workshop. 

Space is limited to 6 places, so get in quick!


About the artist:

Long time Bay of Plenty local, Melissa Spargo is following a family tradition of working with plant dyes. She is also passionate about helping divert fabric waste from landfill so combines these to weave wall hangings, as well as to create a myriad of other bohemian style home & garden décor items.

Using seasonal gatherings from Mother Nature to extract plant dyes, Melissa loves to share her personal ethics behind the work she does and to inspire enthusiasm for the wonder of what Nature can provide!
