Get hands on with an ancient craft of basketry, transformed into a modern sculptural medium.
Learn the technique of hidden core coiling, a technique that involves wrapping or stitching a weaver around a core. Weave with beautiful coloured raffia, hand dyed using botanical dyes. You will learn the fundamental skills of coiling, making a start, shaping, adding materials and embellishments.
Sue will demonstrate varied techniques and will be hands on when teaching differing stitches and wrapping styles. You’ll start with a simple basket, then move to larger baskets with more advanced stitches, as well pieces of wall art or make a unique piece of jewellery.
Please feel free to contact Sue on email@example.com if you have any questions.
As well as twenty-five years as a primary school teacher, Sue is a talented textile and fibre artist and over the last five years, has been continuously running workshops in felting, botanical dyeing and basketry.
All materials will be supplied at a cost of $40 per participant - including Sue's hand dyed (using botanical dyes) raffia. This is payable to the tutor on the first day of the course.
