Commuter Crafts

Saturday 12 October 2019

Overview

For this unique workshop on the move, you will meet Vita Cochran at Central Station and board the 9.29 train to the coastal town of Thirroul. Whilst on the train you will start the craft conversation and begin your making journey.

On arrival in Thirroul you will experience a range of craft techniques during two workshops at the beautiful Thirroul Heritage Railway Hall. Vita will teach you how to make Rag Rugs using recycled textiles and local makers Mel Young and Chrystie Longworth will lead a session focussing on portable jewellery making techniques including beadmaking and cordage.

Returning home at the end of an immersive day of material play via the beautiful coastal train journey, you will be able to continue your making and craft conversations, inspired by the endless possibilities for craft on the go and with some unique wearable pieces and adornment for your home!‍

Let them teach you some creative commuter crafts that you can spend your time
making whilst you wait to arrive at your destination!

All materials and lunch are provided.
