Art + Crafts

Wednesday Janaury 24, 9:30 am – 12.30pm

Come for a creative morning of weaving and painting with Hannah Rother-Gelder. Ages 5 – 12 years old.

Children will begin to learn the process of weaving on a card loom and wool. They will be able to participate in the class and then take home their own loom and weaving instructions to continue at home!

The painting will be a fun, collaborative session where children will respond to music and create both large scale and individual smaller painted works, exploring the ‘felt experience’ using a range of senses to paint.

In between the activities a small snack will be provided and a short movement activity to break up the morning.

Prior to the program an enrolment form will be emailed to you requesting emergency contact details, participants details and any other requirements of the venue.

Tapestry Weaving

Learn tapestry weaving from our expert tutor, Hannah Rother-Gelder in a friendly, workshop-style environment. Tapestry weaving is a weft-based weaving where the warp is completely covered. The proposed image is marked on the weft as a guide using a cartoon (drawing) behind the warp as a further guide when weaving. Students will be guided through the process of this particular method of weaving.
Beginners welcome. All materials supplied. 

Partially supported by a Yarra Grant.

Just a quick reminder for all our artistic visitors that due to OHS regulations we don’t allow the use of oil paint in any form including the water-soluble variety
