Event description
Learn the art and craft of yarn spinning and Saori weaving through these therapeutic and enriching Sunday workshops

About this event

As part of Reframe, Recharge & Reset - to spin your own yarns and to weave your own stories are fibre art workshops that are intended to seamlessly bring users on a journey to see through the process of yarn spinning, to using the freshly spun yarn to co-create a series of woven tapestries that will be installed at the Paperwork hallway at the end of January 2022.

These workshops are facilitated by Cheryl Tan, artist and Founder of Kaijuu Fibres (@kaijuufibers)and Natalia Tan (@natalia_weaves), textile artist and curator of "to feel our selves again"

Natalia will be using the break between the two workshops to give a Curator's Tour: join us to hear the stories behind the art on display, and get the backstory of the exhibition from the curator herself.
