Weaving for Parents Workshop at MakingCo

I am delighted to be continuing my partnership with MakingCo with a brand new workshop in the fall. My Weaving for Parents workshop will help parents and caregivers spend quality time with their children and help them to develop new, independent skills.

Weaving together is a great way to connect. It helps both parents and children to get off your screens and into the rhythms of your hands, body and breath.

In this special workshop for adults, you'll learn mindful handweaving techniques that you can, in turn, share with your kids. Enjoy tranquil time to focus on yourself and experience weaving as a form of meditation, gaining the knowledge to pass these skills onto your little ones. You can make something beautiful together and kids will be proud to use their weavings as a potholder or a special place to rest a favourite shell, rock or stuffed animal.

To enhance this workshop, I've created a brightly-colored pattern book designed to bring out your child's inner artist. You and your children will have easy patterns to follow as you make beautiful weavings to use in your home or to give as a gift.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to this class.
