You are invited to sit with Amy Rosenberg and learn the ancient art of coil weaving using natural materials foraged from the wild.
In a world where time is money, many of us have lost our connection with the earth. Its time to kick off your shoes and reconnect with the art of living, sitting and creating something beautiful from what seems like nothing to the common eye. Together we begin a perpetual motion of creativity and connection.
During this weaving circle Amy will share her knowledge of materials, the plants they come from, harvesting, meditation and process of how to begin, how to shape, and how to finish your Basket.
You will leave with a new perspective, and a fresh eye, your own small hand made basket, a small bundle of materials, and a weaving needle to get you started on your next creative piece.
Please bring a cushion to sit on, a snack to nibble on, and plenty of drinking water.
You may also have a piece of material, a shell, a feather, or something similar that is sentimental to you that we can incorporate in your basket.
ABOUT YOUR TEACHER
Hello, Im Amy, and I'm a weaver. I once was not, but something wonderful happened to me...My first stitch was in 2015, sitting in a women's circle at Nimbins weave and mend festival.As I held the fibres and begun to bring my first piece together, a feeling of natural flow took over. This was an experience that seemed to come naturally to me, in all it's ways. Almost as if I knew my hands had done it before, I felt excited as the knowledge came flooding back to me. Everything down to the rope and string had been created using natural fibres found on the forest floor, all sourced, gathered and stripped from local plants and trees. I was blown away, and knew that I had found my calling.
My work has been displayed during the 2016 Spring Arts Fair, held in Nimbin, and Mudwood Studios, (located in Kyogle) currently stock some of my work. As an assistant to the co ordination of the 2016 weave and mend festival, I was provided with some wonderful opportunities to network within the weaving community, and share some more great times of fun and learning. During this time, I was able to hold my own workshops, and share some of the wonderful ways of weaving with all who wanted to know. I also found time to set a frame, and weave together a workable size teepee for the children to play in. It was a hoot! I have held several workshops on the Sunshine Coast, and within the Northern Rivers of NSW.
My passions are in skill sharing, and working towards creating a healthy, happy, balanced connection with life, and all within it's circle. Oh, lets not forget WEAVING!!! That's definitely a passion.
