Centre Celf was alive with creativity last night!

Our first Mapuche Weaving Class with Artist Liz Beasley was an amazing experience. We learnt about Chilean culture, climates, natural dyes as well as weaving techniques!

This hands on series of evening classes will provide students with the practical experience of making a simple frame loom, and the expertise to create beautiful woven textiles.

Dates: 13, 20, 27 September, 4, 11, 18 October 2017 (6.30 - 8.30pm)
