Hey, I'm Rainie, the weaver behind The Unusual Pear!
I have run over 40 weaving workshops and taught over 300 amazing people the wonderful art of weaving in a ton of different locations over the past few years. I've taught in Newcastle (regularly), Sydney, Adelaide, Byron Bay, Brisbane and even as far as New Jersey USA!
My weaving workshops are perfect for beginners. They have a relaxed vibe which allows you to learn at your own pace. I aim to keep my workshops intimate, only having around 8 bookings per workshop (subject to demand in out of town locations) to ensure I have enough freedom to guide everyone through the process equally.
