Experimenting with form
Jodie Goldring is a notorious gleaner, artist and teacher who brings a broad range of creative experiences to her basketry.
In this workshop, you’ll learn how to use natural materials to make a small melon basket using the traditional basketry technique of ribbed construction.
Starting by lashing two intersecting willow hoops together to create a basic framework, we’ll add ribs for structural integrity and strength before creating a woven surface using plant materials such as iris, red-hot poker, bulrushes, watsonia, and willow.
As well Jodie will share information about how to collect, dry and prepare your own materials to use at home.
