Weave away a lazy day exploring and working with foraged plant fibres. This relaxing, nourishing and meditative class is taught by Byron Bay artist Zimmi Forest, using fibres foraged on the north coast. As you know we are all for sustainability around here, and if there is anyone that has the magic touch of turning nature into art, it's Zimmi.
With over 22 years of experience of making, exhibiting and teaching random weave, basketry and fibre art, Zimmi has a wealth of knowledge on natural and foraged fibre. Zimmi came to art through a passion for sustainability and the environment. She's pretty passionate about creating work with nature, about nature and in nature. Like a natural born creative, part of her daily practice is creating at least one craft work each day. She's sure is dancing to the beat of our drum!
Sit back with a cup of herbal, between murmured whispers and meditative pauses whilst Zimmi leads the blissful woven journey of this ancient craft.
In this workshop, you will learn the simple techniques to transform natural fibres into a beautiful utilitarian basket or sculptural object made from Bangalow inflorescence.
