Tasmania/Huon Valley, AU
This workshop will introduce participants to the techniques that Aboubakar uses extensively in his own work. Using lengths of Malian handspun and handwoven organic cotton, participants will stitch together either a shawl or an envelope pillowcase. They will then learn how to finish the edges and make either fringes or tassles depending on which project they choose to undertake. Both projects are entirely handsewn, so although you do not need any experience you will need patience and perseverance.
