A weaving workshop

In the spirit of Women’s month, me and Francesca designed A Weaving Workshop as an opportunity to invite people to meditate on the strong females in their lives and how we can celebrate them by learning the ancient technique of weaving.

Weaving is historically connected to female empowerment. This craft is all about  telling individual and collective narratives through textiles. Through this perspective, the craft becomes a medium or self-affirming and confidence building – qualities we find in empowered women, women that we aspire to be one day.

The attendees of the workshop spent one saturday afternoon being instigated to talk and meditate over inspiring women in their lives while they learned how to weave. By the end of the workshop, they were invited to send their homage weaved piece to the women they were thinking of.
