Basketry Group

This craft group meets on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. The group investigates the use of plant material, Australian and introduced, to make a wide range of baskets. Techniques range from traditional stitching and weaving to free form construction with vines and creepers. In recent times the group has made basketry items from corn husks, pine needles, vine pruning and red dogwood, and experimented with dyeing basketry materials.
