Have you ever wanted to learn how to identify, prepare, process and weave local plant fibres from our area??
Have you ever wanted to connect with ancestral skills - the skills that all of our ancestors called upon for their survival for thousands of years?
Join us for this Local Fibrecraft & Basket Weaving Workshop for beginners.
Welcome to the WILD WEAVING Workshop
This WILD WEAVING Workshop is a deep dive into the plethora of local plant fibres available to us from nature we can use to weave simple baskets, string and decorations. Let's Get Wild!
Caitlin Weatherstone is an experienced Wildlife Ecologist, natural products creator, wild crafter and nature connection mentor who will show you how to handcraft your own simple woven baskets from local plant fibres such as coastal pandanus, bulrush, lomandra, cabbage palm and more. Take home your magically crafted basket and show off your new skills as a wild fibre forager and weaver!
After this workshop, you'll be able to confidently identify, prepare and process local, native plant fibres... using your newfound plant allies from the forest or your backyards.
We'll also learn simple coil basket weaving and string-making techniques that can be used to make baskets, earrings, table decorations, necklaces, wall hangings, hair pieces, and more!!
Please note: This is a beginners workshop and an introduction to basket weaving/string making and native plant fibres. You will have time to complete one small woven basket and a small amount of string - but you will need to continue the practice at home if you'd like to become a skilled weaver and complete larger pieces.
When? TBC 12-6pm
Included? All the materials and equipment you'll need, native-inspired lunch,
plus you'll get to take home any creations you've made.
BYO? Water bottle, pen & notepad, blanket/ pillows to sit on, extra snacks.
