Rosalee weaves her magic as workshops resume

Bundaberg Christian College’s Rosalee Morris finds time between teaching music to share her passion for weaving through her Rosemade Fibre Arts workshops.

Rosealee said now that the Coronavirus restrictions have eased, she was excited to resume her Rosemade Fibre Arts weaving workshop this weekend.

She said she had always enjoyed producing handmade items, from sewing, knitting, crocheting and dabbling in a variety of craft, since she was a young girl.

“I have always been a maker and have a great love for colour and texture, so weaving became a passion,” she said.

“From this I learnt to spin wool and other fibres and I enjoy doing that when I can.

“I love the idea of taking a fleece, dyeing it, carding it, spinning it and working it into my own art works. I love to travel and I have collected many types of yarns from all around the world.”

Rosemade Fibre Arts workshops expand to embrace weaving

Rosemade Fibre Arts workshops
Rosemade Fibre Arts workshops will resume this weekend.

Last year the busy grandmother-of-four opened her Innes Park home to teach people how to crochet with Learn to Crochet workshops, using leftover t-shirt yarn from the t-shirt factories which would otherwise go into landfill.

She said these workshops had proved very popular.

“I taught over 120 people to crochet,” she said.

“My crochet students spied my weaving and begged me to teach that too.

“So, after a lot of planning and research, I began teaching weaving workshops at the end of last year and (I) have had many happy weavers in my home studio at Innes Park.”

The music teacher said she liked to humbly think of herself as a fibre artist and said her workshops were intended to be places of relaxation and learning.

“While students definitely learn new skills and meet new people, there are lots of laughs, great coffee, special teas and my famous brownies!” she said.

Rosalee Morris will open her Rosemade Fibre Arts workshops again this weekend after the easing of Coronavirus regulations.

“Everyone leaves with all the supplies and information they need and most buy more supplies so they can continue creating at home.”

Rosalee said she would normally have up to 10 participants at a workshop but this weekend she would ease into classes again with a capped number of five participants.

She also makes and sells yarn packs and weaving kits for those who cannot attend her workshop.

Rosalee said these were quite popular and were often bought by customers in America.
