Create a contemporary basket using the modern basketry technique of random weaving, guided by expert basket maker Jodie Goldring.
In the workshop, we will quickly create the framework from willow, grapevine and/or wisteria loops to provide structural integrity. Then we’ll build the surface of the structure with flowing lines of finer plant materials such as the purple flowering Hardenbergia.
This visually appealing style of basketry echoes forms in nature such as the bird nest and seedpod.
Jodie will provide your materials along with information about how to collect and prepare your own plant materials at home.
This workshop will inspire and teach you how to transform your own pruning material from the garden into treasured baskets.
Join us for a beginners’ basketry workshop where no previous experience is needed. The workshop is suitable for both adults and teenagers.
