About Rachel Wood
Since she was young Rachel has been drawn to textiles, with a keen eye and enthusiasm for colours and textures as well as her DIY attitude, Rach started off self taught. She is now a fibre artist and weaving teacher based in her hometown of Melbourne. Screen printing, dressmaking, clothing alterations and repairs, latch-hooking, macrame and tapestry weaving have become a part of her everyday practice. Rachel’s philosophy is to give everyone the tools to open a door to a lifetime of creativity, a skill once learnt is yours forever, and we think that’s a pretty good investment!
During her weaving workshops, Rachel creates a platform for adults to reconnect with play and imagination, to slow down and rejuvenate in a fun and relaxing atmosphere. She aims to explore the powerful aspects of community, where knowledge and skills are passed on and relationships are strengthened through a mindful and exciting experience. Rachel values her efforts in building a warm atmosphere where others can find human connection though learning new techniques and artistry.
Rachel has collaborated with clients including The National Wool Museum, Boom Gallery and Creative Vic and has been teaching workshops and cultivating her artistic practice since 2013.
Rachel is passionate about working with the community and those who share her values in sustainable practices within the clothing and textile industry. She is currently supporting Second Stitch, refugee and asylum seeker led textile studio, Form By T – slow fashion / made to order service and The Future From Waste Lab.
