Twined basket making is one of the oldest known craft techniques. In twining, two or more strands are used to weave. Twining is a very satisfying and relaxing way to improve your hand dexterity and coordination, and to make a deeper connection with nature and with ancient cultural traditions. It is also a very versatile and useful way to attach elements together, which can be done with natural plant fibres or with modern synthetic materials.
Included in the workshop will be discussion around the history and culture of basket making, explanation of gathering and preparation of materials for basketry, and demonstrations followed by one-to-one instruction. Notes and all materials will be provided.
