HANDS ON WORKSHOP

Join one of these hands-on, heart-felted workshops with Kim Gordon.

You will create your very own individual gorgeous scarf made from tissue silk fabric and fine merino wool.  The layering of fine merino wool and silk will emulate your own personal design, then after adding a few embellishments you will walk away with a stunning creative piece to keep you warm throughout the colder months.

The perfect way to decrease your wardrobe and reduce your footprint is to add a few elegant accessories such as your very own handcrafted scarf.  This workshop will impart to you the knowledge and information to create felt pieces again in the future.

This is an intimate workshop with a maximum of 3 participants, you will receive focused attention to learn the skills required to felt beautiful pieces of clothing and art.

Kim Gordon, who lives locally in the Perth Hills, first learned to felt about 10 years ago and fell in love with it. Ever since she was a young girl she loved the fibres of different fabrics which she reflects may have come from her mother and grandmother teaching her how to knit and crochet using many different wools and cotton.

Over the years Kim has developed a love for natural fabrics and has mostly felted as a

much-loved interest.  Kim has also participated in many workshops with well-known Australian and International felters giving her a variety of skills to share.

Her motto for felting is ‘From Fibre to Fabulous’… “To start with tiny and delicate fibres and watch them turn into a strong and durable piece of fabric or art work is amazing” says Kim.

Kim is facilitating three of these hands-on heart-felted workshops during the Common Threads Exhibition.

Common Threads – Woven through Community is a month long community engagement project proudly brought to the Perth Hills following on from the world Fashion Revolution week in late April.

This exhibition includes topics of integrating sustainability, creativity, and traditional hand-crafted wisdom of the ages. These events are designed for you to leave feeling deeply inspired to become part of a brand new impulse of considerable change.

Drawn to the meditative quality of this slow-paced creative practice Phoebe uses found and recycled fibres as the starting point for the design of her beautiful pieces of art.

Vintage textiles, modern art and the colours of the Australian outback inspire Phoebe’s work. She is also interested in weaving as a cultural practice, and how it has been used amongst different groups and communities around the world.

Phoebe will create a beautiful space where you can slow down, drink good tea and coffee, have a wonderful conversation with like-minded weavers and immerse yourself in making magic.

Common Threads – Woven through Community

HANDS ON WORKSHOP

Join Jane Milburn for this once in a lifetime opportunity to be involved in a three hour hands on workshop of Mindful Mending.

Jane is travelling directly from over East to us at The Sound Temple to bring her wealth of expertise on this topic to the heart of the Perth Hills Community.

Jane says “Clothing is as essential as food for our health and wellbeing because clothes do for us on the outside what food does inside – they nourish, warm, and engage body and soul. What we choose to wear impacts how we feel and how we present to the world.”

As conscious eaters are now aware of sourcing fresh whole food and returning to the kitchen – conscious dressers are engaging in the process of learning where and how their clothes are made. Our choices have profound influence – yet sometimes we are too busy to think much about them.”

This interactive workshop will be led by Jane Milburn based on a philosophy of living lightly on Earth through the everyday practice of mindful mending brings love.

Mended garments carry a story of care. They reflect a triumph of imperfection over pretention, while the act of mending itself brings transformation in both mender and mended.

Bring a few garments that need fixing and we share ideas for visible mending, darning, patching and embellishing over and around holes, tears and blemishes. Equipment provided, but if you have needle, thread and scissors please bring them along.

Stay for a lovely warm light supper afterwards.
Maximum: 15 people.

This workshop is followed on in the evening with another event “A Conversation About Clothes” please make a separate booking if you are wanting to attend both events.

Jane Milburn is an accomplished media advisor and communicator with a proven record of effective advocacy for rural, health and professional groups. Jane’s extensive business, media and creative networks provide excellent linkages and outcomes for clients and contacts. Jane is an agricultural scientist, a fellow of the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation, and recently completed postgraduate leadership study at James Cook University.

In 1999, Jane helped reactivate the Rural Press Club of Queensland as a leading agribusiness network and was awarded life membership in 2009. Jane is the founder of Textile Beat, an innovative enterprise that taps into growing interest in ethical and sustainable ways to reduce our clothing footprint. As with the rising interest in home cooking and food growing for health and wellbeing, Jane believes there is a pressing need to rethink our approach to textiles and fashion.

This interactive workshop will be led by Jane Milburn based on a philosophy of living lightly on Earth through the everyday practice of upcycling and enacting personal change.

The clothing surplus in wardrobes and op shops presents a creative opportunity to revive and adapt garments to suit ourselves while exploring our unique style. Sometimes we hold on to clothes which may now be too big, too small or out-of-date. Bring along a few unloved natural-fibre garments and we will discuss options for upcycling them, then enact changes using hand-stitching techniques within the time available.

Join Jane Milburn for this once in a lifetime opportunity to workshop the topic of Clothing Revival. Jane is travelling directly from over East to us at The Sound Temple to bring her wealth of expertise on this topic to the heart of the Perth Hills Community.
Jane says “Clothing is as essential as food for our health and wellbeing because clothes do for us on the outside what food does inside – they nourish, warm, and engage body and soul. What we choose to wear impacts how we feel and how we present to the world.”

This is a fun and uplifting experiential workshop where we use scissors, knotting and stitching to reconfigure your unloved t-shirts into a range of eco-products of our own making to suit our own style. Rework your old Teez into Catwalk Quality accessories that you will fall in love with again, the perfect up-cycle opportunity.

Remodel your t-shirts into endless opportunities including a beautiful neckpiece, bracelet, brooch, ring, phone pouch, shopping bag, caplet, beanie, ribbon/ties.

Please pull out a few unloved t-shirts from the bottom of your wardrobe and a good pair of scissors (if you have them) and with some magic shared by Jane, you’ll fall in love with them again.

Silk and Fine Merino makes a Heart-Felted Scarf @ The Sound Temple
Jun 5 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Contribution: $95

Common Threads – Woven through Community

HANDS ON WORKSHOP

Join one of these hands-on, heart-felted workshops with Kim Gordon.

You will create your very own individual gorgeous scarf made from tissue silk fabric and fine merino wool.  The layering of fine merino wool and silk will emulate your own personal design, then after adding a few embellishments you will walk away with a stunning creative piece to keep you warm throughout the colder months.

The perfect way to decrease your wardrobe and reduce your footprint is to add a few elegant accessories such as your very own handcrafted scarf.  This workshop will impart to you the knowledge and information to create felt pieces again in the future.

This is an intimate workshop with a maximum of 3 participants, you will receive focused attention to learn the skills required to felt beautiful pieces of clothing and art.

Kim Gordon, who lives locally in the Perth Hills, first learned to felt about 10 years ago and fell in love with it. Ever since she was a young girl she loved the fibres of different fabrics which she reflects may have come from her mother and grandmother teaching her how to knit and crochet using many different wools and cotton.

Over the years Kim has developed a love for natural fabrics and has mostly felted as a

much-loved interest.  Kim has also participated in many workshops with well-known Australian and International felters giving her a variety of skills to share.

Her motto for felting is ‘From Fibre to Fabulous’… “To start with tiny and delicate fibres and watch them turn into a strong and durable piece of fabric or art work is amazing” says Kim.

Kim is facilitating three of these hands-on heart-felted workshops during the Common Threads Exhibition.
