About this event


		Coiled Basketry Online Course - 2 x 2.5hrs image

All around the world since ancient times people have been making useful and beautiful coiled baskets, mats, bags and similar items. Traditionally the craft of coiled basketry uses locally sourced plant materials including rushes, leaves, grasses, raffia, etc.

Building on the same ancient techniques a more recent version of this basketry craft is to make items using cord, yarn and fabric, we will utilise these materials in this online workshop. It is possible to apply all the techniques taught in this workshop using the more traditional plant materials.

A coiled basketry item is made by creating a spiral shape with a core material and then another material is used to bind the core together into the required shape as it develops.

In this interactive online course, I will give clear demonstrations and instructions for you to be able to make a small coiled basket and a place mat. We will work along-side each other whilst learning a variety of techniques and stitches, these will include how to start and finish your item, lazy stitch, figure of eight and lace stitch.

You will be encouraged to experiment with colour and material combinations whilst making your items and also to work on your items in-between the two sessions. During the course there will be plenty of time for you to ask questions and receive assistance, if needed.

Your ‘Coiled Basketry Kit’ will be sent to you in advance of the course and it will include all the equipment and materials needed to make a small basket and two coasters (or a place mat), including cotton cord, needles, thread, yarn, fabric and an instruction leaflet.

You will need to provide your own scissors for cutting the thread and fabric. We will use a variety of materials, colours, patterns and techniques and I encourage you to add your own fabric and yarn to personalise your project.
