Monika’s passion and specialty is making wall hangings and tapestry that are both rich in colour and texture, so you can be sure she’ll guide you through designing and creating your own unique stand out piece!
You’ll be taught basic weaving techniques, where to look for inspiration, how to effectively colour block and what fibres will work best. Whether you prefer to plan your piece ahead or freestyle, she’ll guide you through the process, while you learn about natural fibres and how to get the best out of them!
This is an introductory class suitable for both complete beginners and those with some prior weaving experience!
ABOUT MO & MUM
Monika, one half of the Mo & Mum duo, is a Polish born Berliner, textile artist and designer who’s just moved to Melbourne.
The idea for the handcrafting duet came to life when Monika and her Mum would help each other while exploring their creativity through textile art. Monika focussed on weaving and macrame which she’s loved from day one, while her Mum went for embroidery and knitting.
“Like an artist paints a painting, we weave a weaving”. With a passion for art and design, Monika found she could express her creativity through textiles and weaving. She started teaching workshops in Berlin, just as the exciting city caught the weaving bug. Monika’s classes have been a big success, with the latest booking out in only two days!
While Monika is preparing to work on some large scale pieces, she’s looking forward to travel to various parts of Australia and spreading her love for colour and natural fibres through teaching.
Such a fun class! I learnt heaps about weaving and was able to finish a whole wall hanging in the time of the class. Enjoyed the process so much, I purchased a loom to do my own weaving at home. Mo was a great teacher, who had lots of insight and knowledge on textiles and weaving techniques :)
I loved this class. Easy to learn and Monika was a great teacher. I've already made two more wall weaves since the class and loving it! Hours fly by when you are creating something fun like this.
Absolutely loved this classes, I'll definitely be recommended it to friends.
