Event description

Description

This Weaving Circle will see you dying natural raffia fibres in the morning from organic food colouring, like berries from the ink plant, coffee, tumeric, red cabbage, spinach etc. In the afternoon we weave rainbow coloured natural fibres into your own unique basket, with ancient techniques.

You can use your Rustic Raffia Baskets to hold food, mail, pot plants, treasures, pencils and paintbrushes, food harvests, jewellery, make-up, bathroom supplies and for decoration in any spot! Come make one or two in this great workshop, to create a unique piece for yourself or to give as a gift to someone you love.

Please bring your own shells, beads, recycled materials or momentos to weave into your basket. An ancient tradition is to gift your first basket and so this workshop is a great opportunity to give a wonderful gift to a loved one.

Desi Achilleos has worked as a community artist for over 20 years. She currently works at Northey Street City Farm and completed her Permaculture Design Certificate in 2017. She has a passion for natural fibre art and creating art in community settings.
