Etsy x Maryanne Moodie Workshop

By Kirsten McKechnie

Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to the Etsy Australia HQ in Melbourne to attend a workshop with weaving extraordinaire Maryanne Moodie. If you haven’t heard of Maryanne already type her name into Google and prepare for some serious design inspiration. Her weavings are coveted the world over and she divides her time between teaching sold out workshops, designing and creating new pieces and putting together beginners weaving kits. Although originally from Melbourne, Maryanne is now based in Brooklyn and is one of Etsy’s most successful makers. 

Etsy is an online marketplace that connects shoppers with makers and curators all over the world. It’s a wonderful place to find something special, unique or bespoke! I love that you can search items and shops by location too. It’s always nice to know you are helping support local creatives and we have so much talent to choose from here in Australia!
Here are a few snaps from the workshop, I hope you can feel the inspiration pouring out of them and I encourage you to go and make something! If you’re looking for some inspiration you can always browse through our DIY projects!
