Coiled Basketry at CNC

Yesterday I worked with 7 ladies at the Creswick Neighbourhood Centre, showing basic tips and tricks when creating coiled baskets. No-one finished their basket so I hope that they go home and spend some time finishing them! Coiled basketry can be one of the more time consuming basketry processes.

A whirlwind tour…

I visited Wesley College, Clunes Campus for a day and a half and managed to introduce a group of Year 9’s to twining, coiling, random weaving and string making techniques! The students will use these new techniques to create individual sculptural baskets and a group art installation during the rest of the week.

Making Straw Dolls

I had a busy weekend making straw dolls with kids and their families at the Creswick Neighbourhood Centre on Saturday and Lavandula in Hepburn on Sunday. At Lavandula the geese were close by, making sure all the stall holders were doing everything well and according to their high expectations!
