What you'll do

Weaving coasters with tees!

In this 2-hour session I will be taking your through the steps of how you can weave with tees. I learned this by doing quite a bit of research online to explore the most simplest approach to it. I also have some basic knowledge of weaving as my mother is a master weaver & she found my class to be fun because she only knows how to do it the "proper" way (giant loom)

Materials:
1. Old t-shirts - min of 2 large men's shirts would be great if not about 3 women or kids tees.
2. Sharp fabric/ craft scissors (KEY)
3. A round flat object to be used as a weaving loom. Think BBQ grill, plastic plate, baking tray, tray (25cm/10inches in diameter). If you don't have any of the above, find a cardboard and cut it to size.

Here's what I will be doing in the session:

Intro and going through the steps with you.

1. Cutting the t-shirts and making yarn out of it.
2. Setting-up the circular loom & understanding what spokes are.
3. Starting the weave and ending it.
4. Cutting up the spokes
5. Tying the spokes to finish the weave!

DONE!
Other things to note
This is beginner friendly. I've taught this class to people with no art background or that they have never done any art & crafts before.

I will be demonstrating how to do the steps and will be changing camera positions on occasion. It is best you view this with you laptop.

Hello!

I am multi artist and maker from Malaysia.

I used to balance a full time corporate role in media with my art for 20-years before focusing on art. I am a graduate of The Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, in Visual Communications (Time-Based Media), UK.

I enjoy painting large illustrative acrylic pieces on canvas and then translating that onto different surfaces or products. I like to experiment with other methods of creation to - installations, murals, pattern design, textiles, batik and even creating with artificial intelligence.

To get inspired I like to #play&make. This means making things with my hands (art & craft techniques like weaving). I believe the best way to make art is in a state of play and want to encourage more to embrace art by holding space for you to create!

Excellent experience! Nini is a wonderful instructor who is attentive and patient. She led an interactive class from start to finish. I’d recommend this to anyone who enjoys diy crafts and wants to try something new. I’m looking forward to trying what I learned with more tshirts or yarn.

Nini’s experience was great! I could done with my t shirts easily and I felt the time I weave was like a meditation!! It was a great Sunday morning activity and I can’t wait to teach weaving to my teenage students:) ニニの体験は素晴らしかったです!tシャツを使って簡単な編み物ができて、しかも瞑想のように感じる時間を過ごせました。 作るのが好きなので日曜朝にぴったりのアクティビティだったし、この体験を早く生徒たちに伝えたいなぁと感じました。

Nini's amiable nature makes it so easy to be in this group setting. She has such a kind, loving energy and a genuine interest in people. She makes sure she chats with every individual and finds out a little about them, and also cross-promotes each person in the group. She is truly generous with her knowledge, and doesn't hesitate to empower participants to get creative and excel in the art.
