Event Details

Pollen Tribe presents:
with Rosemary Riedel O'Brien
Join Rose for an introductory Weaving workshop creating with ethically sourced plant fibres and ancestral hand craft techniques. Using a simple card board Loom you will learn to create your own plant inspired cloth, aiming to create a textile that celebrates the wonders of natural fibres. We will explore the ritual of craft, the vital lessons of slow making and the beauty inherent in coming together to create. There will be space to expand your creative expression, learn skills that you can later develop and connect to the elements that surround us, paying homage to their life-giving nature.
Rosemary Riedel O’Brien is a multi disciplinary Artist specialising in hand spinning, weaving and natural dye techniques. Rosemary’s work is inspired by the Earth and elements. She works with heritage slow craft processes to combine ethical materials, spirituality and raw creativity- an alchemical combination that forms her bespoke textiles and workshops that are rooted in reverence and authenticity. She has been weaving for over 4 years and started her textiles business, Wild Rose Weaving, after completing a 6 month apprenticeship at the Bright Moon studio with Artist Maker Imogen Bright Moon in Brighton. She now lives near Dartmoor, England and continues to deepen her practice.
