Basket weaving is one of the most ancient crafts and it’s showing no signs of dying out. Get a taste for it and you’ll see why! During this workshop you’ll create a coiled basket using raffia and recycled materials such as denim, silk, wire and other fabrics and yarns, learning elements of the ancient art of basket weaving as you go.
Your teacher for the day will be Ruth from Craft School Oz and this lovely lady has so much passion, knowledge and talent to share. She’s travelled to some amazing places to learn her craft from women weavers in South East Asia and Arnhem Land. With her guidance you’ll create your own unique colourful, textured basket and take great pleasure in making something useful and beautiful with your own hands.
