About the Art Textile and Fibre Craft Workshop Experiences
New Zealand offers the most gorgeous of places to visit, not only visually but creatively.
NZ Textile Experiences invite local residents and visitors to the region to take time out and indulge in one or more of our hands-on fibre craft or art textile workshop experiences where you will create your own unique piece or design to take away with you.
Based in the Nelson Tasman region, this scenic area is renowned for its proliferation of art, artists and myriad of creatives, including a diverse range of textile and fibre craft practitioners.
The vision for NZ Textile Experiences is for you to enjoy those special experiences by creating textiles and fibre crafts in glorious New Zealand locations, with our fabulous tutors sharing their individual specialist skills along with knowledge of their local environment.
By participating in a fibre or textile workshop, you will learn more about our country, meet local people who are also passionate about textiles and take home a unique piece of textile art.
Textile and Fibre Craft workshops can be taken individually or in small groups, each taught by an expert in their field. This is an intimate experience, working in the artist's own studio or workshop, ranging from rural locations in bush settings to an eclectic art gallery and an inner city creative space.
Workshops on offer so far are Unconventional Textile Materials, Wild Basket Making, Screen Printing, Hand Loom Weaving, Stitch-Embroidery, Harakeke - NZ Flax Weaving, Screen Printing, Eco Dyeing, Tapestry Weaving, and Felt Making with more to follow ...
