Enrol in Fibres, Feelings & the Creative Path
Course Code: ARTS2458
A basic understanding of simple knitting is required but you won't need to read patterns.
Every woman has a life story that can be defined as a complex tapestry woven from the textures of experience and the colours of change. Sharing time with other women in a safe and supportive space, gather ideas and techniques through writings, poetry and stories. As a knitter, stretch your imagination and experience a unique artistic process in the creation of a beautiful wearable art shawl - a "wisdom wrap". Without the confines of a pattern, use different sized needles, strips of favourite fabrics, natural and synthetic yarns, feathers, fur, shells, stones, jewellery, and other meaningful materials in an exploration of the creative process through the use of colour, texture and story. Discover and rediscover your innate creativity through ongoing freedom to 'be with' varying fibres, textures, colours and stitches. Trust your imagination and be inspired by the natural surroundings, through the use of story and music, and by the reality of endless possibilities. Instruction is suitable if you can knit, purl and cast on stitches.
