I had a bit of a break from pure jewellery making this weekend to do a weaving workshop at the Harvest Workroom here in Melbourne, focusing on weaving methods from the pacific region. I’ve been wanting to incorporate woven elements into my jewellery for some time and have been searching for workshops to learn new techniques. I love the combination of natural fibres and silver.
This little pod I made using raffia and some of Harvest’s beautiful fabrics – not that you can see much of the fabric in this one. I was trying to see how small I could make it using the materials and technique. Given my obsession with pod forms and baskets, I was quite pleased with the result. I look forward to testing the techniques further when I have some time maybe over Christmas.
