Random Weaving at FRBGM

We were able to spend the day weaving outdoors yesterday at the Friends of Royal Botanic Gardens enjoying the sunshine. We were not the only ones ‘out and about’ as there were many visitors popping into the cottage during the day as they meandered through the gardens.

Wild Willow Fence workshop

Yesterday was an incredible Spring day that I spent with a group of lovely people at the Creswick Neighbourhood Centre. We managed to build and decorate a fence out of wild willow that I collected along the waterways of Creswick and Daylesford over the last few weeks.  

Twined basketry at FRBGM

A trip to the historic cottage at Friends of Royal Botanic Gardens is always a treat as I get to wander through the gardens. There was a variety of twined baskets made on Saturday August 3 as someone bought a stunning ceramic platter to weave from and others silk sari’s to up-cycle.

Making verdigris…

I am creating a metal sculpture for a private commission…It is a work in progress that will be revealed soon…but I wanted to post about making verdigris. I have been cultivating verdigris seed that will be applied to the surface of the sculpture when it has been finished… a interesting process…
