In the textile art workshop in schools, I show children creative, artistic and sustainable ways of designing with textile materials and inspire them to make their own things together. To this end, I present a selected and playful range of production and design methods from all over the world, ranging from felting, weaving, dyeing and embroidery to patchwork and sewing small projects.
It ideally includes:
Weaving: Finger weaving (Native American); pole weaving (rag rugs, Sweden);ribbon weaving, map weaving (Europe, South America)
Felting with raw wool from local sheep
Braiding and cord making: Kumihimo (Japan); loop braiding (Europe)
Pompoms, because they are fun and decorative (from all over the world)
With needle and thread: small patchwork ideas, sweetbags and juggling balls (from all over the world); embroidery: Pata Tenanga from Mexico, free embroidery
Working with color: Shibori - a batik method from Japan; reverse printing with rice pastes (Africa)
