MoMu I Monica Ho

Twining is a simple operation in which the weaving elements are woven around two spokes (two-strand weave). Any flexible materials can be used as the weaving element: wool, cord, plastic bags cut into strips, strips of clothing, ribbons, wire etc.

The technique is taught in this workshop. No experience is required; both beginners and those with more advanced skills are welcome. You will go home with a unique creation and lots of inspiration so you can continue experimenting. Possible projects could include anything from basket objects, jewellery, bags and hats right through to room dividers, garden screens and more.
