Basket Weaving

Use your imagination and natural fibres and vines to create a unique random weave basket. You will learn the skills of random weaving and how to create cord from red hot poker leaves to fix a niffty little handle into place. No experience is needed for this fun weaving experience. Hints on harvesting and storing natural fibres will also be given. Notes will also be provided. All materials will be supplied

Tutor: Sally Blackwell

Sally retired from teaching in 2008 and is a firm believer that everything has an inherent value and should not be wasted. She has been experimenting with natural fibres, grasses, vines and recycled materials found in her local environment to turn what might have been wasted into something useful and pleasing to the eye. She brings her environmental beliefs to her love of basketry in creative and sometimes unusual ways.
