Weave a Wall Hanging with Rachel Wood

Join Rachel Wood from Wunder Weave for a relaxed and inspiring 4-hour weaving workshop at the National Wool Museum.

Using beautiful materials and tools, you will learn the basic skills for preparing a loom, different weaving techniques and leave with a finished piece to hang on your wall.

Access to the tools and materials needed to create a finished woven wall hanging will be provided.

Please note: Loom kits are not included in the cost of this workshop, but they will be available for purchase on the day.

About Rachel

Since she was young Rachel has been drawn to textiles, with a keen eye and enthusiasm for colours and textures as well as her DIY attitude, Rach started off self-taught. She is now a fibre artist and weaving teacher based in her hometown of Melbourne. Screen printing, dressmaking, latch-hooking, macramé and tapestry weaving have become a part of her everyday practice.

During her weaving workshops, Rachel creates a platform for adults to reconnect with play and imagination, to slow down and rejuvenate in a fun and relaxing atmosphere. She aims to explore the powerful aspects of community, where knowledge and skills are passed on and relationships are strengthened through a mindful and exciting experience. Rachel values her efforts in building a warm atmosphere where others can find human connection though learning new techniques and artistry.

Rachel's philosophy is to give everyone the tools to open a door to a lifetime of creativity, a skill once learnt is yours forever, and we think that's a pretty good investment!
