Bow Families: weave a flower-shaped wall hanging with Clara Malonda

Sunday 25th February 2024 , 11:00am to 1:00pm

Exploring ideas around land and the healing power of nature, learn how to use natural and upcycled materials to weave your very own flower-shaped wall hanging. 

Flowers can bring us comfort and help ground us when we feel lost or uprooted. In this workshop, we will pay homage to their soothing qualities by weaving flower-shaped looms with yarn, fabric strips, and scrap paper inspired by flowers and nature, to create our own floral artworks we can hang up at home.  

Clara will provide a small info sheet outlining the flowers we are inspired by, what they represent, and their healing qualities.  

In this workshop, Children will learn how to weave, compose their own artworks, and upcycle materials to create something brand new. 

This event is an inclusive, friendly environment which is accessible to all abilities and age groups.    

Bow Families is a series of free, drop-in family art workshops that take place on the last Sunday of every month in the Bow Arts Courtyard. These sessions are a wonderful opportunity for local families to get creative and try something new! Each session is led by a Bow Arts’ Artist and all materials are provided. 

Free Drop in – all are welcome!
