Continue in our series of Tackle the War on Waste Workshops with Jodie Goldring, who is a notorious gleaner that has a broad range of creative experiences to share. Patterned shirts go out of fashion so quickly that they tend to crowd the hanging spaces in our wardrobes and at op shops. In this workshop you are invited to use them to make complex colouration in the creation of a coiled basket using a mariposa stitch. You will also learn the technique of string making which is a relaxing thing to do at the end of the day and resulting cordage can be used for a myriad of things around the house and garden, such as tying a tomato plant to a stake. So, grab your old patterned shirts and join us for a beginners’ basketry workshop at Plant Craft Cottage nestled in the RBGV Melbourne Gardens. This workshop will inspire you to make your very own treasures by re-purposing your old clothes to tackle the growing war on waste.
