21 Nov 2020 to 12 Dec 2020 Once Only Event
Basket Weaving is one of the oldest traditional crafts practiced in many countries around the world. The variety of materials used is endless and mainly sourced from plant material available in the local environment.
The joy of making a basket from materials collected from the natural environment is both satisfying and exciting. You will be filled with pride as you admire your own handmade basket and the joy you can experience when you give a basket you made, filled with homemade goodies is a pleasure to give and an immense delight to receive.
You will use materials they have sourced from the garden and vines they have collected from revegetation and clearing sites. Participants will learn how to create a Random Weave Wild Basket. This basket consists of a Randomly Rigid Rim which has a few Randomly place Ribs, then lots of Randomly woven Vines. There are only a few basic rules and lots of Wild and Creative Free-form Weaving. These baskets are ideal to store your Fruit and Veg or to display with pride as an original Work of Art!
