So to top off a great day, I came home to a delivery of incredible fibres from @theunusualpear that came with CONFETTI! #therovingartisan #fibre #crafternoon #weaving #yarnporn
A new piece just for me. When creating for others is your job it is really difficult to find time to put aside to be creative without purpose or pressure. This piece was born from some experimenting for some new exciting opportunities coming up, but I was so drawn in by the process and texture that I knew I needed to complete something just for me. Now it has found a home above my bed so I can enjoy its beauty every day (and no mini fingers can get in and destroy it). #therovingartisan #weaving #wovenwallhanging #linen #sydney #learntoweave
Gearing up for another exciting workshop tomorrow! I found some amazing new materials to bring along - so excited  to see what is created! #therovingartisan #weavingloom #weaving #sydney #workhops #crafternoon #wallhanging #weavesomemagic
❤️NEUTRAL LOVE ❤️ It doesn’t always need to be about colour. I find myself constantly flipping, one moment I am all about bright, bold colours and the next minute I want nothing but neutrals! This piece made me swoon so much last weekend - what a beautiful creation. Bec, the incredible woman behind this piece, had a vision in mind when she came to my workshop, and boy did she deliver! #therovingartisan #girlsgettogether #crafternoon #weaving #sydney #sydneycraft
Can you believe this incredible piece was created by a self proclaimed “Beigist”! I just love the colour combinations she chose to work with - bold and beautiful! I travel with a huge surplus of yarn and try to bring as many colours and textures as I can squeeze into my car. Imagine what you could create? #therovingartisan #crafternoon #girlsgettogether #weave #weaving #sydney #henspartyideas #yarn #tapestry #woventapestry
We are very proud to share the story of PLC Sydney ex-student Jessica @therovingartisan as part of Perinatal Awareness Week, Nov 11-17.  Approximately 1 in 5 new and expectant birth parents experience problematic symptoms of perinatal anxiety and/or depression (PNDA). As a community of women, it is likely that some of us will experience PNDA ourselves, or know someone who will.  For more information or if you, or someone close to you, needs support, contact your qualified health professional or call @gidgetfoundation 1300 851 758  #plcsydneyalumni #womensupportingwomen  #inspiringwomen #pndaawarenessweek  #starttalking #gidgetfoundation . Regram from @therovingartisan If you missed it, here it is! So proud to be sharing my tonic with other amazing women. A portion of my revenue is donated to the amazing gidgetfoundation. Come and join me for a workshop and let’s get talking! #therovingartisan #weaving #sydney #crafternoon #mindfullness #connect #slowdown #womensupportingwomen
About a month ago, I organised a personal event that finally took place on the weekend. It was like I was driven by a higher power to make this happen as I knew it would satisfy both my heart and soul.  You see, this week - 11th-17th November - is the awareness week for @pandanational. PANDA is the national organisation that supports families dealing with depression, anxiety and stress before, during and after pregnancy. This is an organisation that has helped me personally during my wild and wonderful ride of motherhood and I felt it was the perfect time to give back. The whole idea behind the event was to make it into a fundraiser so that PANDA can continue to help people like me deal with feelings they’d much rather do without.  The event was something I literally couldn’t wait to get my hands into as it was a weaving workshop, run by the extremely talented and courageous Jess from @therovingartisan, and we made our own wall hangings. As a graphic designer and photographer, I do love colour and texture and try to include it into my life as much as possible. Plus, it gave me a chance to catch up with some wonderful and inspiring women who I haven’t seen in a while. And can I tell you.........it was BRILLIANT! We all had so much fun, shared stories, tears, laughter, bubbles and hugs as we wove our way through the afternoon. If you were really astute, you might have seen my face on the TV that night during the @channel10au 5pm daily bulletin report with @lou_donnelly which was a completely unexpected twist in the day! But such is the life of a parent and I thank my lucky stars that I’m dealing with things like that so much better now.  It truly was a wonderful, heartwarming and inspiring day. I’m still buzzing from all the excitement!!! . #iwishiknew  #pandaweek #postnataldepressionawareness #postnataldepression #anxiety #crafttherapy #therovingartisan #girlsgettogether #crafternoon #wovenwallhanging #weaveweird #yarnspirations #yarn #spinayarn #sydney
You know that you really did hit the ‘best dad in the world’ jackpot when you get a surprise delivery of @natalie_miller_design yarn for no reason! Feeling all the feels and cannot wait to start creating something magical with it! #therovingartisan #yarnporn #weaveoholic #crafternoon #sydney
Look at these amazing creations that came out of an amazing workshop yesterday! We laughed, we cried, we were interviewed for channel 10 and in all of that craziness we were able to produce incredible wall art that everyone loved! #therovingartisan #girlsgettogether #crafternoon #wovenwallhanging #weaveweird #yarnspirations #yarn #sydney #asseenontv

So I spent the day yesterday catching up with one of the most amazing women on the planet! This incredible human being is not only the genius behind my website, but a continual inspiration each day to push forward and get **** done! @handygirrrl is the person you need in your life if you need some digital love! One of the best parts was me finally having the balls to update my website on my own and updating this number! 123 new weavers have learnt this incredible handicraft and I cannot wait to see this number keep getting bigger! #therovingartisan #handygirrrlkits #learntoweave #weaving #weavingsydney #girlsgettogether #crafternoon
It really is people! Get the girls together and get your weave on! Get in touch and let's book it in!〰➰〰#therovingartisan #crafternoon #woventapestry #wovenwallhanging #weaveweird #sydney #workshopsydney #fiberart #yarn

This is a recent piece I created for a friend for her new house. She requested a neutral look with splashes of blues/green. The photo doesn't do the Roving colour justice - it is the most incredible teal that I have fallen in love with. #therovingartisan #woventapestry #crafternoon #weavingsydney #weavingloom #learntoweave

So I warp all of my looms before a workshop (let's face it, it's the boring part and we all want to get to the exciting colourful part)! I do wish I had a super power that made me this fast - oh how much weaving I could do in one day! A girl can dream! #therovingartisan #crafternoon #learntoweavesydney #henspartyideas #getthegirlstogether #fibreart #loom #weaving #getyoweaveon
Hubby is sick in bed today, so he gets to be the patient for once. I hope to smother him with love and kindness today! Please smother yourself with love and kindness also, you really do deserve it!  The phrase "for now, not forever" is deeply personal to me, it was shared with me during my darkest days and has remained my personal mantra to help me see through the darkness and focus on the future. If today is not a great day for you, please know it will not last forever! #therovingartisan #selfcare #youdeserveit #kindness
Look at that smile!  One of the most amazing parts of my work is meeting and spending time with incredible women. Watching them slowly become comfortable with the loom, seeing their creativity bloom and then enjoying their smiles as so much laughter and joy is shared around the table. How lucky am I! . . . . . . . #therovingartisan #crafternoon #learntoweavesydney #sydneyworkshops #joy #smile
Had such an amazing day at Carers Day Out. I met some of the most incredible people and we created some gorgeous mini weaves for them to take home. Definitely ready for an early night and a glass of wine!  #therovingartisan #sydneyweaving #carers2018
These are the mini weaves we will be creating tomorrow at the Carers Day Out event at Redfern Community Centre. Come on down and say hello, I will be running workshops between 10am and 2pm. #therovingartisan #carers2018 #carersweek2018 #sydneyweaving
I had the absolute pleasure of spending this gloomy Sydney afternoon with an incredible bunch of women. They all created a unique and beautiful piece while giggling and drinking the afternoon away. I love seeing what magic will be woven, and I certainly wasn't disappointed today. Well done ladies! If you and your girlfriends would love to get together, connect and create, then get in touch! 〰➰〰➰〰➰〰➰〰#therovingartisan #sydneyworkshops #rainyafternoon
Today's workshop! Can't wait to show you what we create today! #therovingartisan #weavingsydney #workshopsydney #getyoweaveon
“The little things? The little moments? They aren’t little.” This quote is everything. (It's from Jon Kabat-Zinn, an American professor emeritus of medicine and the creator of the Stress Reduction Clinic.) Being in the moment is one of the most powerful things weaving has given me. No matter what's going on outside, or in my head, I can sit still, focus on the yarn, the colours, and threads, and pretty soon, I am lost in the creative pursuit. . . . . . . #mindfulness #selfcare #bepresent #therovingartisan #weaving #fibreart
One of the first people I taught to weave was a dear friend of mine. She has now passed down her love and knowledge to her incredible 12 year old daughter who has also caught the bug. She is almost finished creating unique and individual wall hangings for her family, friends and teachers to give them as Christmas gifts. I cannot begin to express how incredibly proud and touched I am that I was involved in passing down a skill and technique that she is now in turn passing along through her gifts to her friends and family. Absolutely #spreadingtheweave  Let me know if you feel like learning to weave - I would absolutely love to teach you! #therovingartisan #learntoweave #sydneyweave #fibreart #christmasgifts
I'm really excited to have been asked to be involved with Carers Day Out on October 16th. I will be holding workshops throughout the whole day and I can't wait to see what everyone creates!  Carers Day Out is an annual event, part of National Carers Week, which sets out to recognise and celebrate the carers in NSW and Australia wide, and it is an opportunity for us to show our appreciation for the outstanding contribution that they make each day to our community.  Ultimately, we want to let them know that we care #carers2018 #therovingartisan
I'm always amazed at how differently people's weaves come up. Here they are with the same yarn and colours to choose from, the same amount of time, and they're generally from the same friendship group or background in some way. Yet, each individual mind and personality is revealed over the course of the workshop. What a blessing to be able to glimpse these unique pieces of another human being. . . . . . . . #therovingartisan #diyweaving #learntoweave #weaving #weavesydney
I absolutely love seeing all the different colour palettes people choose to work with during my workshops. Are you a neutral gal or do you love a splash of colour? 〰➰〰#therovingartisan #weavingworkshop #colourpalettes #yarn #wallart
Loom, weft, soumak, rya, tabby ... just some of the very weird words of weaving! Getting acquainted with the jargon and terminology of a new subject is often one of the trickiest parts of the learning curve. So I thought I'd start a little glossary of terms for all you would-be weavers out there. So let's start with one of the most important parts of weaving - the loom! (And a quick warning - these aren't definitions that you'll find in any book!) Loom: this is the machine or frame that you use to make your weave. Looms work by holding particular threads still and under tension, so that other threads can be woven around them. They come in all shapes and sizes from huge machines to small, hand-held frames. In my weaving workshops all frame looms are supplied. They're the perfect starting point for a new weaver. For details about my workshops that rove across Sydney, check out the link in my bio. .​ . . . . . #weaveweird #learntoweave #weavingworkshopsydney #fibreart #therovingartisan
Back from the farm and ready to throw myself into this week. It is the first week of school holidays, so even though I have visions of having a really productive week full of hustle, I fear it may turn out to be a week full of " I'm bored", "They hit me first" and "I'm hungry"! Wish me luck! . . . . . . .  #therovingartisan #weaving #sydneyworkshops #weavingart #yarnscraps #yarn #wallhanging
Spending some much needed time with the family and some dear friends. Loving the time to create and relax in the glorious weather! Also cannot get enough of the yarn from @alittlewarped - crated with the scraps from my past workshops. #therovingartisan
Yay! It's the long weekend! So I feel like celebrating - book and secure your workshop this weekend and receive 10% off. Perfect for a silly season get together with your girlfriends! Hurry - most weekends for the rest of the year are filling up fast! Can't wait to get our weave on! #therovingartisan #crafternoon #sydneyweaving #sydneyworkshops #longweekend
One beauty of weaving is you're never punished for your mistakes; you simply undo the threads. Isn't that a beautiful metaphor? As someone who lives with anxiety and OCD - I can relate all too well with the debilitating feelings that you might somehow be punished for your mistakes. We are all under such a huge amount of pressure all the time - the kids, house, job, appearances, friends, family, commitments - it never ends. If only we could always know that fixing mistakes is never more difficult than simply undoing the threads ... . . . . . . #loomweaving #weavingclass #sydneyworkshops #mothershealth #therovingartisan
Let me share something I have learnt with you. Fringe trim and scallop edges are not friends! Even though I am not 100% happy with how this piece turned out, my two girls adore it and have chosen a home for it. That's the thing I love about weaving, I am constantly learning and experimenting - a good reminder to constantly challenge yourself. ➰〰➰✂️ #therovingartisan #toomuchpink #sydneyworkshops #crafternoon
One of my all time favourite pieces! This one was a gift for some friends who own a gorgeous whalers cottage down at the world famous Hayms beach on the south coast of NSW. It's a combination of weaving and latch hook and just calls out to be touched! #therovingartisan #weaving #latchhooking #woven #texture #minke
Weaving is certainly where my heart belongs...but I also love so many other handicrafts! This is a sneak peak into my youngest daughter's room and this wall hanging that I made for her right after she was born. This hanging is a latch hook piece, and I absolutely adore the texture that it creates! #therovingartisan #sydneycraft #weavingworkshop #latchhook #yarn #sydneyyarn #roomforthemohawk
Suffering from a major case of weavers block right now! I can't figure out what I want to do with this fringe... Part of me loves the straight lines (the OCD part I think) and then another part of me is screaming out for a scalloped edge? What is it screaming to you? ➰✂️〰 . . . . . . . #therovingartisan #weaving #weaversblock #fringe
Can you believe this gorgeous tapestry was made in just under 3 hours by a complete beginner? One of the things I love most about these workshops is seeing a new weaver emerge. As the saying goes ... there's one born every minute! Many people don't consider loom weaving when they're looking for a craft, hobby or form of creative expression. We all know about sewing, knitting, quilting ... but weaving is often quite new to people. I've found weaving to be one of the most beautiful crafts with a mild learning curve that makes it very accessible. In a matter of hours, you can create a finished product that is beautiful enough to hang in your home or give as a gift. If you want to learn the art and craft of weaving, follow the link in my bio. I do private workshops for friends, special occassions, kids and much more. Plus I rove to you :) . . . . . . . #therovingartisan #weavingworkshop #learntoweave #wallweavesaustralia #sydneycraft
I absolutely adore seeing where people decide to hang up their creations after a workshop!  If you have a colour palette in mind to work in an area or colour scheme in your home, just let me know! ➰➰➰#therovingartisan #weaving #yarn #yarnporn #wallhanging #wallart #sydney #workshop
Look at this gorgeous wall hanging  made in one of our 'Get Yo' Weave On' workshops and her beautiful creator. We had so much fun during this workshop, my cheeks were hurting so much form all of the laughter! #therovingartisan #weaving #weaving #workshop #pink #wallhanging
Currently working on this big beauty! I haven't decided what I will do with it yet, I am just really enjoying the creative process and playing around with different techniques. My daughter has already declared that it should live in her bedroom! Have a wonderful Saturday 😘#therovingartisan #weaving #yarn #yarnporn #wallhanging #loom #fringe #pink
Yay for Friday! I am off today to stock up on some yarn for some upcoming workshops. I always have to push myself to branch out and pick colours that I might not usually pick. I'm such a creature of habit and my personal weaves tend to stick to a similar palette. What colours are you crushing on at the moment? #therovingartisan #yarn #workshop #sydney #weaving #wallart #colours
So I thought it was about time I gave you guys a little insight into how The Roving Artisan came to be. The Roving Artisan is an idea I have been sitting on for a while, but the catalyst to get it off the ground came earlier this year when I was actually a patient at the St John of God Mother and Baby Unit. I was diagnosed with Post Natal Depression and OCD after the birth of my second child in 2012/13 and unfortunately after the birth of my 3rd child in 2016, my PND came back and punched our family in the balls big time. After a 5 week stay in the MBU I promised my self that I was no longer going to let the fear of failure stop me and made the decision to just go for it.  Why weaving? Weaving has been something that since my diagnosis has been my happy and safe place - it keeps my hands and brain busy when it so wants to be consumed with other things and was also a creative outlet where I could make beautiful things for my home and as gifts for family and friends.  So with that little sneak peak into my soul...I am so proud to provide an opportunity for women to slow down, come together and create something memorable and beautiful in the comfort of their own setting. I would absolutely love to see you at a workshop - link to my website in bio. #therovingartisan #pnd #celebrate #learn #create #weaving #yarn
I love those moments in a workshop when I glimpse someone who’s completely engrossed in their weave. Just a couple of hours before they’d never laid hands on a loom, and now it seems like there’s nothing else in the world. The mindfulness that weaving encourages is one of the reasons why I love this craft. The world slows down. Your hands are busy. Your mind is engrossed with yarn and colours and patterns. It’s one of life’s true beauties and it’s such a pleasure to be able to introduce people to this.  If you’re interested in learning to weave, my beginners weaving workshops travel Sydney. All materials and equipment is provided. Website in bio. #therovingartisan #weaving #loom #wallhanging #sydney #workshop #groupactivity
Look at this gorgeous hand-woven piece I recently recieved from a fellow biz mum, as a thank you for sharing with her all that I know, to help her launch her new venture @therovingartisan.  The Roving Artisan specialises in running weaving workshops and has committed to donating a percentage of its profit to The Gidget Foundation, which supports the emotional wellbeing of expectant and new parents by helping them get timely and supportive care. Now, to hang this lovely creation ... #wallart #weave #handwoven #yarnweaving #therovingartisan

Fresh off the loom! Just finished this little trio of weavings to be sent out to some very special people! Really love adding embroidery into my weaves to add an extra dimension. ➰➰➰#therovingartisan #wovenwallhanging #embroidery #weaving #loom #pink
