The Dreamweaving Project


Learn to weave your own piece of wonderful wall art with renowned textile artist Natalie Miller.

Equal parts haptic therapy and eco-friendly art, knitting and weaving have sprung to prominence in recent times. As Australian artist Natalie Miller says: “I believe people now want to make handmade, not just buy handmade. It’s a reaction against technology, and craft can be the answer.” Having gained a significant profile for her large-scale textile artworks that are big, bright and, above all else, touchable, Miller has been sharing her skills via workshops across the world. Now, she’s bringing the tutorial directly to your home.
