Himelli Mobiles with The Craft Companion Authors
Craft Month at Kino presents HIMELLI MOBILES with The Craft Companion authors!
In this workshop, Melbourne-based makers and authors of The Craft Companion, Ramona Barry and Beck Jobson will teach you how to make Himelli mobiles! Using traditional Scandinavian Himelli techniques and using paper and plastic straws, you will learn how to fashion colourful, geometric forms in 3D, which can be further embellished to create beautiful mobile artworks.
