Share your lived experience of the pandemic through art! Join fibre artist, Caroline Hawkins, as she takes you through a weaving technique known as "random weave".

During this workshop, sculptural fibre artist Caroline Hawkins will guide you through a weaving technique that allows creative expression to evolve as you create order from chaos.

Caroline Hawkins work encompasses wrapped textiles and structural weaving techniques to create organic sculptural forms which borrow from methods used by basket weavers. A key feature of Caroline’s work is plant fibres. The process of gathering and sourcing these fibres provide her with a unique connection to nature, which in turn informs her subject matter, from delicate wrapped native animals and birds to woven sculptural vessels. 

**Created works will be exhibited, photographed, and digitised images uploaded to the Geelong Regional Libraries website.

The Creative Collective Memory Arts project is funded through the Libraries for Health and Wellbeing Program; an initiative of State Library Victoria (for the Library Board of Victoria) and Public Libraries Victoria under the banner of the Statewide Public Library Development Projects 2020 – 2023
