Event description

Description

Also known as ‘Gypsy Weaver’ Cathy is a local Maryborough resident who is a Saori textile artisan. Saori is a method of free-form weaving that prioritises creativity and free expression. Cathy is passionate about sustainability and sources all her materials and fabric from op shops and other discards and transforms them into wearable art. Cathy was invited to Alice Springs in June this year to attend the ‘Sustainable Couture Fashion Show’ and to talk about refashioning and recycling textiles.

Come along for a talk and demonstration of this weaving technique. Cathy will share with you her skills with weaving and upcycling and let you have a go yourself with her wonderful loom.
