intro to basket weaving
Basket making is an ancient craft throughout the world and Ruth Woods has loved exploring this craft for many years. She has drawn her inspiration from several sources and has learnt the skills from travelling and meeting women who have shared their knowledge.
During the class you will be taught how to stitch a coiled basket with a variety of materials to help let your creative juices flow. Once you have mastered the technique you will be guided in making your own basket and encouraged to create your own design. You will be given a resource list and access to videos to refresh your knowledge to take home.
This price includes entry to the entire Soul Craft Festival for the day of the masterclass.
Students will take home their own coiled basket, a resource list and access to videos to continue your basket creation journey.
Students will be provided with all materials needed for the workshop to make a small coiled basket. They will be given a needle and have access to a wide range of hand dyed raffia, threads and yarns. They can purchase extra raffia to take home to create more baskets at the end of the workshop.
If you’d like to bring along threads, yarn and scraps of fabric, feel free to do so.
