Random Weaving

Making a basket using RANDOM WEAVING

Participants learn how to create a contemporary basket using a more modern basketry technique. Random Weaving requires an expressive and creative way of working that appeals to many. In this workshop participants can create a basket or let their imagination go wild to create a garden sculpture. This visually appealing style of basketry echoes forms in nature such as the bird nest and seedpod. Examples of materials that could be provided are the indigenous vine hardenbergia, cane and willow.
