|Interwoven creativity- weaving natural forms
Spend 5 days with me exploring nature, weaving and creativity at the Sturt Winter School at Mittagong, 3-7 July 2017
Through the lens of nature, explore traditional basketry with a sculptural perspective. Through a series of creative exercises that will connect you with the natural world, you will uncover the secret life in natural materials.
This workshop is all about exploration and play not perfection. Starting with standing in nature we will explore ephemeral art techniques and you will learn how to connect with nature, your stories and your creativity.
You will then learn traditional basketry and weaving techniques including random weaving, twining and construction.
You will use a variety of foraged and harvested natural fibres to weave vessels and sculptural forms. These forms allow you to tell your stories in interesting ways, and help you tap into powerful creativity.
Learning at your own pace, in this hands on, practical workshop you will have the opportunity to experiment and explore basketry techniques with the opportunity to complete a series of sculptural forms.
We all have new growth ready to emerge, and this basketry workshop will help you reconnect with your imagination, nature and give you new insights and perspectives.
Suitable for all levels. Only 10 places available.
