Go Wild With Weaving 2022

Go Wild With Weaving is a small operation, based in Golden Bay, New Zealand.  2022 will be the ninth event, offering six two-day weaving courses encouraging newcomers and experienced folk to come along, learn new weaving skills, meet new people and have fun.  Our April 2022 event will be on Saturday 23rd/Sunday 24th April.  The programme and tutor details are being finalised.

We operate an all welcome event, inclusive of race, religion, sex, ability and Vax status. There will be no requirement to show vaccine passes.  Students and tutors are free to weigh up the benefits and risks of the Covid vaccination, that is their personal choice..  Of course we expect everyone to come only when they are healthy and Covid free.  We will honour mask waivers and personal choice.

If you have any questions or want to register your interest or book a course, contact me at nicola.basham@xtra.co.nz
