ANCIENT BASKETRY ART OF TWINING
16 June 2019 10am – 4pm
Where: Catriona Pollard Artist Showroom, Level 1, 4 Young St Neutral Bay
Cost: $195 inc GST and materials
Having spent hundreds – if not thousands of hours twining so many different types of materials, I just love twining. It’s my go to basketry technique where ever I am – on the train from Rome to Florence, sitting on the beach or in front of TV. It’s one of those techniques that once you’ve learnt the fundamentals, you can apply to so many materials, forms, baskets and sculptures.
In this basketry workshop, learn the ancient basketry technique of twining using beautiful polished hemp. You’ll learn how to twine and also how to add in to create patterns. During this full-day basketry workshop, there will be time to explore this beautiful weaving technique. Over the day we will be making two small baskets so you will leave confident in the technique, and how to start and do multiple finishes. It’s a small class so you get hands-on tuition from an expert. All materials included.
Suitable for beginners, or intermediate weavers. (If you’ve never done weaving before – perfect! You’ll love it and leave with finished baskets).
