Mother's Day Woven Mandalas Workshop with Chrissie Powell

12 May 2019

Woven Mandala Workshop this Mother's Day
Mt Tomah Botanic Garden
10:00 am – 12:00 pm

This workshop will embrace your individual style, resulting in your own unique woven mandala. You will learn weaving basics on small circular looms, including techniques to create different patterns and styles. The craft of weaving is rhythmic and mindful, a colourful yet tranquil activity, perfect for a day surrounded by nature in beautiful Mt. Tomah. All materials are included, but feel free to bring your own items to incorporate, such as different types of wool, fabrics strips or adornments

Meet the Artist

Creating an unorthodox, maximalist aesthetic in fashion and textiles, Chrissie is inspired by all things eccentric and full of colour. Combining traditional weaving and sewing techniques with fantastical colours and patterns, her work reflects the uniqueness of the viewer. She weaves small-scale woven elements by hand, hoping to add a touch of psychedelic fantasy to the world around us.
