This workshop is all about learning the ‘twining’ method. Twined baskets can be made in all shapes and sizes with all manner of materials and plant fibres. On this occaision we will use raffia twined around a cord frame to make a small basket. These materials are ideal for gaining the skill of twining and prepare participants to adventure further into basketry perhaps using plant fibres for their next basket.

Caroline Hawkins is a local artist whose practice encompasses creating sculptural fibre art, basketweaving, researching, learning and developing global cultural weaving practices and techniques.

This one-day workshop will be held 1-4pm Saturday 16th November at Bluebird House (cnr Carr and Swanston Sts, South Geelong).

Subject to minimum numbers.

In this workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Make the frame

  • Twine around the frame

  • Finish your basket

  • Information on other types of twined baskets and suitable plant fibres and materials to use.
