Low Impact Basketry


Course description

In addition to hands-on learning of basketry techniques, we will consider ethical/sustainable collection of basketry materials. Using non-native, and non-endemic, plant species (previously collected by the instructor) you will be supported through the process of making a beautiful woven object. Often unwanted or overlooked plant materials deemed invasive, readily found in the Victoria area, can yield fantastic results.

Don’t worry if you are: "all thumbs". This class is appropriate for both learners with no previous basket weaving experience, as well as advanced students. Please wear comfortable clothing. We will take frequent stretch breaks, but please be prepared to be sitting most of the day.

In each class you will walk away with a small woven basket or other object, and the techniques to create larger baskets in the future.

All materials are included.

Note: this course is limited to 8 students.
