Next session: Saturday 21 January 2023
Gather in circle and discover the the peace and power of weaving with natural fibres.
Lomandra, mulberry, banana, raffia, bangalow palm, cordyline, allocasuarina, lily, passionfruit, water vine – the list of plants for fibre and weaving is almost endless, and there are an abundance growing here at Natureweavers.
In this session we shall identify and harvest natural materials for fibre and weaving from our land (both plant and otherwise), learn how to prepare them for handwork, and then create functional and beautiful vessels, baskets, pouches and talismans.
Our session will start with a Sit Spot practice, and will also include how to make string/rope/cordage, how to begin a coil basket, and how to sew Bangalow Palm leather into vessels/bags/bowls/pockets. We will also explore weaving in non-traditional ways – on rocks, sticks and bowls.
These workshops are designed to empower you to forage and weave your way around your own backyard and beyond!
