News of Heritage Weaving and Tiny Towns Art Trails
We had a wonderful weekend during the Tiny Towns Arts Trail. Lots of visitors and great comments on Dawn’s work.
Heritage Weaving provides you with hand-spun and hand-woven fabric made from natural fibres produced one time only. Combining classic weaving techniques with natural dyes to make one-of-a-kind pieces that are both sustainable and stylish. We call it Slow Fashion and you get to wear our Art creations. You can have a look at and buy the lovely and soft scarves, shawls, and ponchos we have in the store. Visit our studio to see for yourself how we wove these items on the rigid heddle looms and 8 shaft floor looms.
Recycled and dyed fabric
Another project, Dawn had a pre-loved jumper that had moth holes. So, she stripped it all, and dyed half of it. It came out a beautiful a rustic orange colour. And decided to make her first poncho. (see the first photos)
This was the Anzac Day long weekend and Heritage Weaving was busy with Dawn preparing a few hand-woven fabrics. Dawn had a lot of visitors at her studio. Dawn made some of the new hand-woven fabrics into ponchos. They were very popular both on Facebook and our visitors.
