Description

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 where to look for inspiration, how to effectively colour block and what fibres best fit. Wether you’re into planning your piece ahead or a freestyler, she’ll guide you through the process, while you learn about natural fibres and how to get the best out of them.

If you've attended the dyeing workshop with Monika the previous day, bring your dyed yarn to use in this project!

Suitable for beginners, however this class will be great for those who have experience in weaving and would like to take their work to the next level and learn more about creating their own designs, using different colour and fibre combinations. BYO loom (or one can be purchased from Monika on the day for 50$)

ABOUT YOUR TEACHER

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 ‘work shops’ 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.
