Spinning, weaving etc in the Gallery
Please note we do not need to “man” the exhibition, but we have the opportunity to spin, weave etc in the gallery space and talk to people about the exhibition.
Sat 2nd June – Design Centre Launceston
2pm – exhibition opening – all welcome.
Sunday 3rd June
State wide meeting at Northern Branch rooms - Uniting Church Hall, Chant St. East Launceston.
During the exhibition we are encouraging people to “have a go.” To try knitting and spinning. So donations of skills, fleece, commercial knitting yarn for first time knitters, maybe even simple cardboard weaving loams would all be greatly appreciated so we have items on hand so that when we have guild members spinning/weaving/dry felting etc at the Design Centre we have materials and tools that may be used so people may have a hands on experience.
If people are using the gallery space to spin/weave/dry felt/knit their home spun or dyed yarn etc and the finished products are for charity or any event that is news worthy please let me know so that we have a chance to try and organise media coverage.
