Handmade 2013, on in Wellington 1-2 June, includes a wide range of workshops and talks on textile craft and skills among the overall programme. Themes include yarn, stitch, remade, heirloom, world, and offer workshops, masterclasses and lectures. Some are technique based (drop spindling, wet felting), some have an object focus (baby pants, crochet necklaces). Presenters include Tamsin Cooper and Rosemary McLeod and there are beginners sessions as well.
Check out the programme if you haven’t already done and Wellington’s an option on those dates.
