Tell me more!

Join Jilli and Anna in a relaxed and informal setting for a weekend of friendship and sharing. Create your own one-of-a-kind basketry pieces, using found, gathered and repurposed materials as supplied. Explore ideas for making simple vessels and learn how to make string from plant fibres or fabric and then turn that cordage into a small basket.

Experiment with coiling, twining, plaiting and knotting -basketry techniques which, once learned, can be applied to jewellery, mixed media, textile arts, basketry and more.

Work over or around an object, create a basket, make a wearable piece or combine the processes to create something totally individual using just your hands, your creativity and found materials.

We will also discuss various plant fibres and materials and learn how to collect, store and prepare them for weaving.

This will be an excellent starting point for those thinking they might like to delve deeper into the world of basket weaving.

All materials are provided; however, feel free to bring along any items that you might like to add as decoration, egseashells, buttons, rocks, nuts, feather, etc.
