Brisbane: Loom weaving at the BrisStyle Eco Bazaar

If you missed the loom weaving meet up a few weeks ago now's your chance to learn this ancient craft!
This meet up will go through the basics of loom weaving on cardboard so you can try before you buy your own loom or learn cost effective ways to make a loom of your own. Weave any shape and any size textile from teeny tiny brooches through to larger placemats. 

This is a special Brown Owls meet up at the BrisStyle Eco Bazaar! Pop in any time for a spot of weaving, some eco friendly shopping and more! A number of BrisStyle members will also be de-stashing their craft supplies so it's a great opportunity to update your own stash and pick up some bargains!

Loom weaving is hanging out with Mr. Popularity these days, however, one has to love BrisStyle, truly the best handmade and eco craft market in Brisbane that is worth the visit each year.
