WEAVING WORKSHOP

WEAVING WORKSHOP

WEAVING-TOFU12

Sometimes you need to do things not necessarily because there is any future purpose in sight but just because it feels perfectly right NOW and it nurtures your soul.

In this case it was a weaving workshop.

To work with your hands can be very grounding, meditative and inspiring.

Plus as a vegan fashion minded person it is very good to know how fabric can be done and how eventually you could weave your own vegan bag, shirt, sweater, skirt and so on!!

On a personal note, weaving is something I always wanted to learn but never really did, not even during my fashion studies….

I was happy to join this one day workshop by NaniNana at Foound in Geneva.

It was a beautiful relaxing workshop to get to know a new techniques that opened up my horizon.

In case NaniNana is touring in your city with a weaving workshop, it is definitely worth participating. Or you could purchase her beautiful creations on her etsy NaniNanaBoutique Page.

Follow my 9 steps in my one day weaving workshop below and you might be even able to do it by yourself at home…

Thank you Charlie, I had lots of fun.
