This course is part of the public program for INTERWOVEN:
A cross-cultural + trans-generational weaving collaboration of La Trobe Art Institute + Multicultural Arts Victoria, Emerge Cultural Hub (Bendigo).

Note that people visiting the LAI gallery during Interwoven will be able to observe our progress throughout the weaving course. By teaching and learning in the gallery / making space, our classes will make all stages of the handloom weaving process visible to the public – rather than leaving it behind the scenes where it often remains mysterious and inaccessible.
