WILD BASKETS – the joy of making a basket using materials collected from the natural environment is both satisfying and exciting. You will be filled with pride as you admire your own handmade basket and the joy you can experience when you give a basket you have made, filled with homemade goodies. In this workshop, you will be using materials that have been sourced from the garden, and vines collected from revegetation and clearing sites. As well as making a large basket, you will learn how to collect, prepare and store organic weaving materials and how to make and create many styles of baskets using endless types of readily available resources – all materials will be supplied for this workshop.
