A great intro to learning fundamentals of plain weave and shaping- using  easy materials you likely have at home.

Delivery cardboard boxes are perfect for this project but watch the first video and get ideas for what the materials requirements are- then forage for materials at home.

Dawn Livera is a visual artist primarily working in textiles and mixed media, with a focus on “freestyle weaving,” a style of weaving in which “there are no mistakes.”

Dawn studied weaving with a master weaver for many years and completed the Fashion Arts program at Vancouver Community College. She also has a BSc from UBC.

Community engagement is an important part of Dawn’s practice. She believes that making art should not be the private domain of the talented or learned few. Rather, everyone should feel free to explore their own creativity without worrying about whether their art is good enough.
