I love to engage with individuals and groups interested in WOVEN ARTS WEAVING WORKSHOPS.
Workshops are designed to suit your interests, location (for harvesting) and budget. I have presented workshops for 15years and has been engaged as an artist in residence at Flying Arts, QLD and events such as WOODFORD FOLK FESTIVAL, THE PLANTING, ISLAND VIBE, LINES IN THE SAND. I deliver an informative, creative, fun and unique experience.

HALF DAY (3hrs) - $85pp | MIN 6 persons

In this Weaving Circle you will both string making and how to use this original
technology to create a basket. This simple yet striking vessel can be used to decorate the home as a sculptural or functional work of art.
COIL STITCH BASKETS
Come and sit in this Weaving Circle and learn the ancient contemplative art of Coil Stitch Weaving. Discover a plethora natural and recycle materials used to weave together spiralling coils of fibre into your own unique basket art piece.
Learn to shape and weave native Bangalow palm into a very aesthetic and organic woven basket sculpture. Place a jar / candle inside for a stunning rustic lantern.
This Weaving Circle explores the strength, flexibility and form created when weaving with natural cane and vines. The warp and weft technique has been used for thousands of years in cultures across the world and is as relevant today as back then.
For well over a decade I have been experimenting, pulling apart & reconstructing natural & recycled fibers and discovered the endless creative potential of woven sculpture. Come and play with me. Warning this a very addictive, creative and fun workshop.
Join this Weaving Circle and discover a traditional technique that has been used across time and cultures. Using natural fibers you will create a beautiful basket of strength and beauty to use in the home & garden.
