Participants will learn how to make their own simple frame using branches and then make a piece of weaving using natural yarns including Emi’s favourite yarns. Kibiso silk, scraps of yarn and fabric will all be used. Kibiso silk is a sustainable material made from the outside layer of silk cocoons. Participants are welcome to bring their own favourite and recycled materials.
