Learn to Weave! Basket weaving with foraged fibres

Price $165 – $195 AUD + BF Get tickets

Event description


Some of the most beautiful baskets can be made with natural fibres. They’re perfect for twining, the ancient art used all over the world to create everything from strong and durable carriers to fine and intricate patterned weaves.  

In this workshop you’ll learn the basics and make a gorgeous miniature twined basket that you can finish in one day.

What you'll learn:         

  • How to identify suitable plant fibres
  • How to work with natural fibres 
  • The tools you’ll need 
  • How to start your basket
  • Two-strand twining stitch
  • Shaping your basket 
  • Finishing off your gorgeous tiny piece

This workshop is great for beginners and intermediate weavers. Our focus is on exploration, play and self-expression, not perfection! And if you’ve twined before, you can extend your skills into new shapes and patterns.

All materials for the day are provided, including a beautiful selection of natural fibres that have been harvested, foraged and prepared for you. Being a small class there’ll be time for personal tuition. 

This will be a welcoming and relaxing space for anyone who wants to slow down, connect with nature and give weaving a go  - or extend on what they already know!

Come and join us for a great day of fun and creativity, and leave with a beautiful woven treasure of your own.

BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL as there are limited spaces available.

About me: I am a non-Indigenous weaver born and grown on Ngunnawal, Ngambri, Dharug and Guringai country. The weaving I share has been handed down from many traditions and is passed on with permission.
