Twining Basketry Workshop

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

24 Feb 2019

In this basketry workshop, learn the ancient basketry technique of twining using beautiful polished hemp from sculptural fibre artist, Catriona Pollard. You’ll learn how to twine and also how to add in to create patterns. During this full-day basketry workshop, there will be time to explore this beautiful weaving technique.

Over the day, they will be making two small baskets so you will leave confident in the technique, and how to start and do multiple finishes. It’s a small class so you get hands-on tuition from an expert. All materials included. Suitable for beginners, or intermediate weavers. (If you’ve never done weaving before—perfect! You’ll love it and leave with finished baskets).

Catriona has spent hundreds, if not thousands, of hours twining so many different types of materials, she just loves twining. It’s her go to basketry technique where ever she is—on the train from Rome to Florence, sitting on the beach or in front of television. It’s one of those techniques that once you’ve learnt the fundamentals, you can apply to so many materials, forms, baskets and sculptures.
