Etsy Masterclass: Colourful Coiling Basketry



Description

Participants will learn the fundamentals of hand stitching around a core whilst adding various colours and textures (coiling).

This short course is ideal for those with busy lifestyles through the week and are looking for time out for themselves to enjoy creating their own basket.

You’ll learn basic basket making techniques including how to make a slip knot and then stitch around it to form the centre of a circle, how to use texture, thickness and tension to achieve different results and how to finish off your basket.

Come along and join in for lots of laughter and creativity. No two baskets are ever the same!

About Vicki Fowler

I am a retired banker with a lifelong passion for craft. Five years ago I travelled to Alice Springs where I was taught to weave/coil by Nancy (a Tjanpi Desert Weaver). After experimenting with colour and tension I have developed my own style of coiling baskets.

I am a member of Basket Makers of Victoria. I am passionate about running workshops and having fun whilst helping participants create their very own unique special basket to take home.
