Tackle the War on Waste with Jodie Goldring who is a notorious gleaner that has a broad range of creative experiences to share. Learn how to use green waste from the garden to make a small to medium sized basket using the traditional basketry technique of twining. Twining is the twisting of two strands of flexible material around a vertical support. This technique creates shape as well as adds stability to baskets.
Materials will be provided as well as information about how to collect, dry and prepare your own plant material at home. This workshop will inspire you to transform plants pruned in the garden into treasured baskets that help tackle the growing war on waste.
So, join us for a beginners’ basketry workshop at Plant Craft Cottage nestled in the RBGV Melbourne Gardens. No experience needed. All materials included. Suitable for both adults and teenagers.
