Organic Basket Making

Organic Basket Making

About this workshop


Ron and Cathie Twaddle of And Woven Cane are travelling all the way from Queensland for the Lost Trades Fair and joining us for a special weekend of weaving workshops at the Rare Trades Centre.


Join wicker workers Ron and Cathie for this immersion into organic basket making.

In this two-day intensive workshop, you will learn to make an organic style of basket and gain an understanding of the wide scope of basketry. You will design your own basket using colour and shape to express your creativity.

Over the course of the workshop, you will work with a variety of techniques, shapes, textures, colours, forms and materials to create a basket that combines form and function.

At the end of the workshop, you will take your baskets home with you.
