Sustainable Basket Weaving
Sat. 6 May 2017, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm AEST
Bookings open on Monday 3 April at 9am
Basket weaving is an age old tradition spanning many generations and cultures. Weaving baskets is a creative, calming, social and addictive craft! We’ll be incorporating traditional coil weaving practices with modern materials to create our own unique woven pieces.
This sustainable coil weaving workshop for beginners will provide you with all the skills you need to weave your very own basket using an array of colourful yarn and re-purposed plastic bags. You’ll also go home with a Wild Fibres pack to help you maintain your new weaving addiction which includes step by step instruction, a fibre directory and a chenille needle to keep.
Please bring two lightweight plastic grocery bags from any local supermarket (eg. IGA, Foodworks). Some light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
*This workshop is hosted by Inner West Council as part of the Treading Lightly program.
