Workshop 3 - Sewing Techniques Workshop 2nd & 3rd June
This workshop will introduce participants to the techniques that Aboubakar uses extensively in his own work. Using lengths of Malian hand spun and hand-woven organic cotton, participants will stitch together either a shawl or an envelope pillowcase. They will then learn how to finish the edges and make either fringes or tassels depending on which project they choose to undertake. Both projects are entirely hand sewn, so although you do not need any experience you will need patience and perseverance. The fabric used will be 8 metres of organic Malian cotton, which Aboubakar will bring with him from Mali. Needles and thread will be provided.
These workshops will take place at the studio of textile artist Jude Craig – in Upwey at the foot of the Dandenong Ranges.
This workshop costs $550.
